Opioid Addiction Treatment ECHO® Hub at Boston Medical Center

BMC was selected by the University of New Mexico's ECHO Institute to serve as one of five national Opioid Addiction Treatment ECHO hubs for primary care provider teams, collectively tasked with providing training and technical assistance (TTA) to Community Health Centers (CHCs) funded by the U.S. Health and Resources Services Administration. This national ECHO provides training in opioid addiction treatment at no cost, with a variety of bi-weekly schedules to choose from.

The Opioid Addiction Treatment ECHO at BMC utilizes a standardized 12-session curriculum, developed in collaboration with other partners and the American Society for Addiction Medicine, which is offered in 3 cycles over an 18-month period that began in January 2017.

Using simple videoconferencing technology, healthcare teams connect to a community of learners which offers:

All Opioid Addiction Treatment teleECHO clinics include:

  1. Brief didactic presentation by expert Hub team
  2. Participant case presentations and discussions

BMC Opioid Addiction teleECHO clinics take place on the 1st and 3rd Friday of every month from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET.
