This is a drop-in training opportunity. Boston Medical Center's (BMC) Substance Use Disorder Care Continuum ECHO® (SUD Care Continuum ECHO®) offers training and support in addiction treatment, with a focus on supporting front line addiction treatment workforce. This includes health providers in Acute Treatment Services (ATS), Crisis Stabilization Services (CSS), Transitional Support Services (TSS), Opioid Treatment Programs (OTP), long-term residential program, sober and recovery homes, primary care, and psychiatry. This free, case-based tele-mentoring drop-in program is designed to increase the capacity of health care providers to implement high-quality and evidence-based addiction treatment.
The SUD Care Continuum ECHO® is an interdisciplinary learning community that encourages participation from all members of the team caring for patients with SUD. Participants learn from experts in the field of addiction as well as from one another. Free CME, CE, and CEU credits are available.
The ECHO® Model uses a simple videoconferencing platform (Zoom) to link participants across Massachusetts and the SUD Care Continuum ECHO® Hub Team at BMC. Care teams have the opportunity to learn from each other and to receive specialist input from the interdisciplinary Hub team. The foundation of the teleECHO® clinic is case-based learning, in which participants discuss real de-identified patient cases. Each SUD Care Continuum ECHO® session includes a brief didactic relevant to the treatment of patients with addiction. Topics include*:
