Opioid ECHO

TUESDAY BI-WEEKLY 12 - 1 PM | February 7 THROUGH JUNE 20, 2023

This ECHO, coordinated by the Department of Psychiatry at SIU School of Medicine, aims to create a network of trained providers with DATA-2000 waivers who will improve access and care for patients with opioid addiction. The Opioid ECHO will also train clinicians who have the DATA-2000 waiver but who are not yet prescribing.

Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a movement to demonopolize knowledge and amplify the capacity to provide best-practice care for underserved people all over the world through three tenets:

  1. Multipoint video conferencing
  2. Best practices protocol
  3. Case-based learning

Clinicians are strongly encouraged to identify local behavioral health partners to participate in the SIU Opioid ECHO with them.
