Indiana’s Project ECHO highlighted in journal Addiction.
In a letter to the editor published in the journal Addiction, Indiana University faculty discuss the statewide implementation of Project ECHO (Extension for Community Health Outcomes), a model used to increase workforce capacity for the management of medical conditions, including opioid use disorder (OUD). The letter includes research showing the effectiveness of Project ECHO, and how Indiana has designed its program.
Indiana’s OUD Project ECHO has three tracks – for prescribers, behavioral health specialists and community health workers. To learn more about the program or to get involved, visit the Project ECHO website.
