Project ECHO: Addiction Treatment in Pediatric Settings

The Nebraska Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (NEAAP) is recruiting healthcare professionals to be a part of the NEAAP Addiction Treatment in Pediatric Settings ECHO. This virtual ECHO education series serves as a forum for pediatric health care professionals to increase knowledge and capacity in regard to treating substance use disorders in the medical home setting, with a focus on opioid use disorder. Each one-hour ECHO session consists of a short lecture (approx. 20-25 minutes) followed by a case presentation (5 minutes) and discussion.
Participating providers gain access to up-to-date guidelines on addiction management and treatment, become part of a community of practice and learning, and are able to network with other care providers.
