The Mountain Plains ATTC partnered with University of North Dakota’s (UND) ECHO Clinic to create a seven-part ECHO series using an interdisciplinary approach to train health professionals on pain management and recovery titled, “Addressing Substance Use Disorder in 2019: An Interprofessional Approach to Pain Management and Recovery”. This seven-part ECHO Series provides a venue for a variety of health professionals to learn how to help patients/clients manage their pain without the use of opioids.
Each month a different health professional presented on how to management pain from their professional perspectives (e.g., Occupational Therapist; Addiction Counselor; Nutritionist; Chiropractor; Physical Therapist; Music Therapist; and Psychiatrist) in order to promote interdisciplinary approaches especially as it relates to Opioid Use Disorders and preventing overdose. Finally, a rural perspective will be included in each session. A typical ECHO structure will be followed for the seven sessions including a 20 minute didactic followed by a case study and discussion.
To view this 7-part series, other Project Echo presentations on the management of opioid use disorders (OUD), and/or get additional information visit UND’s Center for Rural Health Project Echo webpage. In addition, all Project ECHO teleECHO™ sessions are recorded and available for continuing medical education (CME) credit.
