Pediatric and family health care providers are invited to join the Pediatrics ECHO.  This series focuses on the unique needs of pediatric patients in the mountain west.  Pediatric care specialists teach about the identification and treatment of complex diseases, behavioral health issues, and common acute diagnoses.  Those who attend these sessions improve their ability to provide treatment at the top of their license.  

CME credit and nurse contact hours are available to those who attend. 

In Fall 2021, we'll partner with Project SCOPEand their hub at Utah State University. 

Project SCOPE: Supporting Children of the OPioid Epidemic is a national training initiative intended to build nationwide provider capacity and confidence in applying evidence-based practices in screening, monitoring, and interdisciplinary support for children and families diagnosed with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS), Neonatal Opioid Withdrawal Syndrome (NOWS), or who are suspected of being impacted by opioid use, trauma, or related exposure.  Visit the Project SCOPE web page for more details.  

Register now for the Fall 2021 module.
