Substance Use Disorders in Hospital Care: Curbsides and Conversation

2nd Tuesday of each month, 12pm-1pm


The purpose of this ECHO is to improve care in general hospital settings for people with substance use disorder. We will discuss your complex hospital cases as they arise, share and learn emerging best practices in the areas of addiction medicine (through conversation, not didactics), and foster community among a group of clinicians and other healthcare professionals who have dedicated considerable time to improving their knowledge and skills in these topic areas. Participants are assumed to have basic experience in addiction medicine so there are no didactic-style sessions. Instead, participants will bring multiple cases each week and receive feedback in a “curbside” model from OHSU Addiction Medicine faculty. Participants will be encouraged to bring current cases from their practice, so that the case discussion and curbside feedback can immediately influence practice.

We recommend you take Substance Use in Hospital Care ECHO in order to have the foundational didactics prior to joining the Curbsides and Conversation program.

Hospital clinicians (prescribing MD, DO, NP, & PAs), nurses, social workers, case manager, pharmacists, administrators, quality improvement specialists, and other interested hospital staff are encouraged to register. Oregon registrants will get priority, though all are encouraged to register and attend.
