No recent health-care crisis has captured the attention of the American public as the opioid epidemic. An important component of this epidemic, one that is often neglected in addressing the health-care needs of the affected population, is the role that chronic pain plays in sustaining the epidemic.

The goal of this summit is to catalyze the development of learning communities and networks of excellence for dealing with chronic pain, dependency and addiction. We will learn how Project ECHO can empower primary care providers to develop expertise and confidence in the management of these disorders. We will learn from pain experts from both the physical and mental health communities about evidence-based best practices.

Summit agenda will include, but is not limited to:

  • Forging the Future in Healthcare
  • Chronic Pain and Opioids – How Did We Get Here
  • The Role of Mental Health and Social Determinants of Health in Chronic Pain and SUD
  • How to Build Networks of Excellence in the Management of Chronic Pain and SUD
  • Alternative Payment Models in Chronic Pain and SUD
  • Funding Options for Medication Assisted Therapy
  • Implementing Project Echo at the State and National Levels for Chronic Pain, SUD and Medication Assisted Therapy
