The project partners with diverse groups of primary and specialty care practices to help them build the internal expertise and capacity to provide office-based medication for opioid use disorder (MOUD). The Project ECHO UNC-SON ABC MOUD clinic focuses on addiction/substance use disorders (A), behavioral health integration (B) and collaboration among peers (C). MOUD is the new term for MAT. This ECHO is ideally suited for NPs, PAs, physicians, social workers, other healthcare professionals and/or students interested in learning more about these topics and provides a forum for learning, discussion and collegial support.

COMPLETED Project ECHOs– AHRQ ECHO National Nursing Home COVID-19 Action Network: The grant team was fortunate enough to work on this ECHO through the AHRQ ECHO National Nursing Home COVID-19 Action Network, or the Network. This was a partnership of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), the Institute of Healthcare Improvement (IHI), and Project ECHO to support nursing homes around the country in their fight to protect residents and staff from COVID-19. Using Project ECHO’s “all teach, all learn” guided mentorship model as the foundation, each cohort of up to 35 nursing homes attended 16-interactive COVID-19 ECHO sessions. Topics addressed in the ECHO sessions included: COVID-19 testing, personal protective equipment (PPE), burnout of staff and residents, resiliency and resident cohorting.
