The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is currently recruiting pediatric primary care practices to join a 7-month learning collaborative aimed to implement clinical interventions to improve the health outcomes of families affected by prenatal opioid exposure. Pediatric practices who are interested in developing sustainable patient- and family-centered approaches to engagement, referral to treatment, and recovery of the mother-infant dyad are encouraged to apply. Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is an innovative telementoring program designed to create virtual communities of learners by connecting experts with primary care teams in local communities, fostering an “all teach, all learn” approach. This ECHO will incorporate quality improvement work and will have 2 concurrent cohorts meeting monthly from January through July 2020.
Cohort 1 will meet on the second Monday of the month from 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm CST
Cohort 2 will meet on the third Monday of the month from 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm CST
More information is available in the AAP Opioid ECHO project flyer.
Applications are accepted on a first come, first served basis. The AAP Opioid ECHO rolling application process will be active through January 31, 2020.
Apply online by December 18, 2019
