CKF and Project ECHO

By Uncategorized

CKF Addiction Treatment partnered with the University of Kansas on Project ECHO to highlight opioid addiction and medication assisted treatment twice in 2018. Project ECHO brings together healthcare professionals (doctors, nurses, clinicians, etc.) and community partners through a series of virtual presentations and discussions over a healthcare topic. This was a pivotal point in collaboration within healthcare to recognize addiction as a chronic disease in Kansas.

Why Project ECHO Works – 360 Degree Perspective

This session will explore how Kansas healthcare providers can learn the latest evidenced based best practice suggestions or new guidelines – without leaving their office.   Practicing health care professionals can develop a relationship with a team of inter-disciplinary specialists and each other during office hours.  Project ECHO (Extension for Community Heathcare Outcomes) utilizes videoconferencing to build a collaborative learning experience.
