Chronic Pain Management with ECHO

Are you and your practice interested in updates on the latest evidence based treatment advances for patients experiencing chronic pain?  KU Center for Telemedicine & Telehealth encourages primary care practices to consider the research opportunity to participate in the state’s first Pain Management ECHO. The program will focus on medical, pharmacological, and psychological considerations to enhance patient functioning and quality of life.

Developed in New Mexico, Project ECHO educational sessions support collaborative learning by linking specialist teams and community healthcare professionals. Kansas’ Pain Management ECHO is an opportunity for providers to participate in "virtual curbside consultation" and collaborate with other providers in a technology-supported community of practice, please see Dr. Michael Kennedy’s brief video for more details. Starting later this fall, the interactive educational sessions will be held every other week over the lunch hour and healthcare professionals can join by secure video over computers/laptops, tablets, smartphones, as well as by telephone. The no-cost accredited sessions include brief updates about the latest in integrative pain management, as well as de-identified case presentations. See our Q&A Fact Sheet for Providers & Health Center Leadership. For more information, please contact or call: 913-588-2081.
