Project ECHO is a lifelong learning and guided practice model that revolutionizes medical education and exponentially increase workforce capacity to provide best-practice specialty care and reduce health disparities. The heart of the ECHO model is its hub-and-spoke knowledge-sharing networks, led by expert teams who use multi-point videoconferencing to conduct virtual clinics with community providers. In this way, primary care doctors, nurses, and other clinicians learn to provide excellent specialty care to patients in their own communities.
Saginaw Valley State University currently offers two Project ECHO opportunities. Our first Project ECHO for Substance Use Disorders (SUD ECHO) is offered along with our partners Recovery Pathways, Bay-Arenac Behavioral Health Authority, Ferris State University and Peer360 Recovery Alliance and provides the latest information and case-based learning in substance use disorder prevention, intervention, treatment and recovery. See our calendar of presentations for details on the upcoming topics and presenters.
Launched on June 9th, Project ECHO for Perinatal Substance Use Disorder (PSUD ECHO), in partnership with Recovery Pathways, LLC, Ferris State University and Peer 360 Recovery Alliance provides educational information and practice support for treating those who are pregnant with co-occurring substance use disorder.
