Overdose Prevention and Harm Reduction in Kansas

About the Series

This TeleECHO series is designed to improve health care provider capacity to implement evidence-based practices related to substance use disorder (SUD) prevention, screening, early intervention, referral to treatment and risk reduction.

While helpful to everyone, this Project ECHO series is specifically designed for clinicians who work in the primary care setting, emergency department, hospital or pharmacy practitioners.
