Full Spectrum Opioid Stewardship

Project ECHO: Management of Opioid Use Disorder


When: November 9, 2018

Time: 1:05 pm - 5:05 pm

Location: UND School of Medicine & Healht Sciences, Room E101





Through the launch of Project ECHO, in North Dakota, we aim to develop a broad and flexible continuum of care delivery specifically to treat opioid use disorders, offering both medication assisted treatment (MAT) and psychosocial treatments, and to stretch the limited resources as effectively as possible.

North Dakota’s rural geography creates unique challenges for access to care and translation of new evidence-based practices to the rural practice setting. Resource limitations exist and the burgeoning opioid epidemic is stretching treatment resources more all the time, with only increasing demand on the foreseeable horizon. Project ECHO can be part of the statewide effort to expand treatment of substance use disorders and stretch the limited resources as broadly and effectively as possible.

To address the opioid epidemic, Project ECHO is considered the “next step” in support of continued education for North Dakota providers, integrating with the Champion Prescribers initiative.

  • Project ECHO is an educational Hub and Spoke model.
  • Champion Prescribers is a clinical Hub and Spoke model.

Project ECHO Is a Collaboration

Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is being launched in North Dakota through a collaboration between the Center for Rural Health, Departments of Family and Community Medicine and Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of North Dakota, School of Medicine & Health Sciences, Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota, and the North Dakota Department of Human Services.
