Practice Innovation

Programs such as our Project ECHO for Substance Use Disorders and Project ECHO for Perinatal Substance Use Disorder are examples of how we promote an integrated care model to reduce stigma and improve health outcomes in rural populations.

Project ECHO for Substance Use Disorders

A bi-weekly tele-mentoring series which is designed to help rural healthcare teams grow in confidence and competence in identifying and treating substance use disorders. 

Project ECHO for Perinatal Substance Use Disorder

With support from a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Partnership for Success 2020 grant, SVSU has begun a perinatal substance use disorder-focused Project ECHO.  This Project ECHO will provide continuing education to help healthcare providers to gain critical information and access to perinatal substance use disorder experts in prevention, evidence-based substance use screening, intervention and treatment with the goal of reducing substance use disorder among women of child-bearing age, pregnant women and neonatal abstinence syndrome among their infants.
