This session has been canceled. Lecture is part of the Mental Health Symposium. Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) uses technology and case-based education to train and mentor primary care clinicians to manage complex medical illness in their communities. A typical teleECHO (c) session includes 20 minutes of didactic education followed by de-identified case presentation(s) and discussion over a secure, virtual network (Zoom). Results of Project ECHO initiatives include increased provider knowledge and capacity to treat complex patients, improved provider job satisfaction, amplified capacity of rural providers, reduced waste (e.g., fewer unnecessary tests, less travel), reduced hospitalizations and emergency department use, fewer adverse medical events, and improved patient function. In this presentation, the research team presents outcomes from a one-year program to increase knowledge and capacity among primary care clinicians in the management of people with opioid use disorder.

At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:
• Discuss the value-add of ECHO programs in increasing access and improving health equity for people with OUD
• Analyze participant outcomes from a one-year teleECHO program to improve knowledge of evidence-based management of OUD among primary care providers
• Describe future directions of the MAT ECHO program, including the regular discussion of stigma and stigmatizing language in teleECHO sessions
