Telemedicine for Rural Opioid Crisis: Videoconferencing for Training Doctors on Opioid Addiction

    Dr. Jennifer Allen has far too often seen how the devastating effects of opioid addiction can take on a community. Whether it’s in her primary practice in Quincy, Illinois, or her clinic 30 minutes away in Hannibal, Missouri, patterns tend to emerge when it comes to opioids. The University of Missouri School of Medicine has recognized the problem. Show-Me ECHO, which stands for Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes, allows specialists to train primary care physicians statewide to identify and treat chronic conditions using videoconferencing. An Opioid Use Disorder Show-Me ECHO provides participants with opioid treatment techniques and best practices from medical, pharmacological and psychological professionals.
