Proposals requested for opioid-focused training project that uses Project ECHO model

The Minnesota Department of Human Services is requesting proposals to provide an opioid-focused project using Project ECHO – a collaborative model of medical education and care management that helps clinicians provide expert-level care to patients wherever they live. Using video-conferencing technology to train, advise and support primary care providers, Project ECHO (which stands for Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) increases access to specialty treatment in rural and underserved areas for a variety of conditions.

The department is seeking proposals for the grant period of Jan. 1, 2022, through June 30, 2024.
