Substance Use Disorders in Ambulatory Care

Tuesdays, noon-1 p.m.


This 12 session ECHO series will help clinicians and their teams identify and treat substance use disorders in a primary care setting. Topics may include: 

  • Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) and other Substance Use Disorders (Benzodiazepine, Methamphetamine, Alcohol)
  • Buprenorphine Basics and Induction Basics
  • Naltrexone, Methadone, and other medications for the treatment of addictions
  • Harm Reduction, Motivational Interviewing, and Mutual Aid Meetings

We will select up to 40 clinicians and primary care staff who are in a position to champion change in their organizations. Clinicians (prescribing MD, DO, NP, PA), nurses, social workers, pharmacists, behavioral health specialists, practice managers, and quality improvement specialists are encouraged to register. Ideally staff will participate as part of a primary care team that includes a clinician and one or more other staff member.
