Logistics of Project ECHO: Management of Opioid Use Disorder
All members of the rural healthcare team are encouraged to participate including, but not limited to:
- Primary care providers
- Medication assisted treatment (MAT) prescribing providers or those interested in becoming MAT providers
- Behavioral health providers
- Public health professionals
TeleECHO clinics will be held twice a month. Each clinic will be 1 ½ hours long.
Rural provider teams who decide to participate virtually across North Dakota.
Each teleECHO clinic will include a brief didactic presentation on a relevant topic, with the majority of
time then devoted to case presentations from rural primary care team participants in a case-based learning
format with feedback and input from ECHO experts and peer participants.
Project ECHO and the Champion Prescribers are both components of North Dakota’s State Targeted Response
(STR) to the Opioid Crisis grant, funded by the federal Department Health and Human Services (DHHS),
Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), administered through the North Dakota
Department of Human Services.
