This 12 session ECHO series is designed to help recovery peers and clinicians integrate the peer role into various medical settings. Topics will include:

  • Integrating Peers into Emergency Department, Hospital, and Primary Care Settings
  • Trauma-informed Strategies for Discussing MAT
  • Harm Reduction from a Peer’s Perspective
  • Self-care—Addressing Peer and Clinician Stress and Burnout

  • Effective and Supportive Supervision Strategies
  • Community Work Beyond the Clinic or Hospital Walls 

We will select up to 40 individuals including peers, peer supervisors, clinicians, and their team members to participate. Physicians (MD, DO, ND), physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, pharmacists, behavioral health specialists, practice managers, and quality improvement specialists are also encouraged to register. Participants will be selected based on their interest, geographic distribution throughout Oregon, and ability to commit to the sessions.
