AMERICAN SOCIETY OF ADDICTION MEDICINE (ASAM) ECHO
What is ECHO?
Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a collaborative model of medical education and care management that empowers clinicians everywhere to provide better care to more people, right where they live.
The ECHO model™ does not actually “provide” care to patients. Instead, it dramatically increases access to specialty treatment in rural and underserved areas by providing front-line clinicians with the knowledge and support they need to manage patients with complex conditions.
Learn more about the model.
What is ASAM?
This ECHO series is based on information found in The ASAM Criteria: Treatment Criteria for Addictive, Substance-Related, and Co-Occurring Conditions, Third Edition and incorporates an opportunity for participants to learn and apply the information through a short didactic presentation and case-based activities.
