Program Description

Curious about Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) for Opioid Use Disorder? Want to start MAT at your clinic? Started already and would like more guidance/support? This teleECHO is for YOU!

The University of New Mexico Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences in partnership with the University of New Mexico Department of Family and Community Medicine have developed a comprehensive curriculum to support providers to start or expand Medication Assisted Treatment for Opioid Use Disorders (OUD).

This teleECHO covers key aspects of prescribing (e.g., overview of OUD and MAT, induction, specifics of dosing, MAT and co-occurring disorders, MAT with special populations, etc.), psychosocial supports (Motivational Interviewing, Harm Reduction, co-occurring disorders, etc.) and clinic-level resources/skills (screening, monitoring, workforce staffing, billing, etc.). All core content for new (or newish) prescribers is covered every 3 months. Join us!

This teleECHO clinic is funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. The curriculum was developed by Julie Salvador, PHD; Snehal Bhatt, MD; Vanessa Jacobsohn, MD; Andrew Sussman, PHD, and Larissa Maley, PHD.

Target Audience

  • This teleECHO clinic was developed to support rural primary care providers to start or expand MAT for OUD treatment. However, attendance is open to and relevant for all providers and clinic staff in any context that are interested in starting or expanding MAT for OUD.
