A one-hour clinic will be held every third Tuesday from 12-1pm (PT). The purpose of the monthly Tribal MAT ECHO™ Clinic is to support health care providers in Indian Country to improve the delivery of culturally-responsive, evidence based treatment for opioid and stimulant use disorders. The Project Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes (ECHO™) model is a distance learning method that links specialists at academic medical centers with primary care clinicians in local communities. Each clinic begins with a presentation on a topic relevant to the delivery of opioid and/or stimulant use disorder treatment and features a facilitated discussion of a case or clinical question. Attendees are encouraged to bring complex patient cases and clinical questions for peer-to-peer discussion with input and consultation experts. CEs and CMEs available for certified and licensed participants. This project is part of the UCLA Opioid and Stimulant Implementation Support-Training and Technical Assistance (OASIS-TTA) Program.
