University of Utah School of Medicine is pleased to continue the ECHO Series: Integrative Primary Care & Substance Use Disorder Treatment. Led by an interdisciplinary team of specialists, this program will give you the opportunity to learn best practices in addiction care, including diagnosing, treating, and recovery care, and have open discussions around the management of patients dealing with substance use disorder. 

Topics will touch on issues and cases typically seen in primary care settings with both didactic and case discussion components. 

This session is accredited for 1.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s). These credits are valid for physicians, and psychologists (check with your credentialing organization). We have confirmed with Utah DOPL that they will accept the use of a University of Utah CME transcripts as continuing education credits when recertifying your license. 

Why Should I Participate in this Education Series?

In many communities in Utah and nationwide, substance use disorder is a growing issue. The past year has seen record numbers of overdoses and overdose related deaths, with Utah’s deaths up over 17 percent as of March 2021. Those affected are not strangers, but our neighbors, business owners, and friends. As physicians, advanced practice providers, and other health care workers, we are in a unique position to help our communities. 

In many communities, there are a limited number of providers who are able to provide substance use disorder care. This series aims to expand the knowledge of treating and managing substance use disorder in our communities. 

These sessions are open to any level provider or health care worker who may benefit from such education. Eligible attendees will be able to receive CME credits (1 hour per session). Full instructions for claiming CME are available in the CME Learner Information Packet

Why Should I Submit a Case?

Case presentations allow for a collaborative learning environment where everyone has an opportunity to learn, and everyone has an opportunity to teach. Anyone can submit a case on any topic relating to substance use disorder. 

If you are having trouble diagnosing a patient, need help determining a treatment plan, or are looking for help in supporting a patient in recovery, you may consider submitting a case; our team and the other participants will listen with empathy and help determine a best course of action.

We welcome any question you may have about substance use disorder.

Note that case topics do NOT need to align with the session topic.
