Quality Counts: Rapid Induction Starting in the ED (RISE) Training, Webinars, ECHO Program
Quality Counts (QC), in collaboration with BlueWater Emergency Partners and several other partners (MMA and ACEP) is working under a contract with the state of Maine to host an education program for interested hospital Emergency Departments (EDs) focusing on how to initiate buprenorphine in the ED. During the Rapid Induction Starting in the ED (RISE) project, QC plans to offer a range of learning methods, including both in-person and virtual events, to provide education and assistance on best practices for initiating buprenorphine in hospital EDs for individuals with Substance Use Disorder (SUD) who are willing to engage in treatment during an ED visit.
If your ED is interested in receiving training or technical assistance on initiating buprenorphine in the ED from peer coaches in the field please contact Kayla Cole at email@example.com or tel. 207-620-8526 ext. 1027.
Additionally, as part of our project RISE educational programming, we will offer a four-month ECHO program that will convene a "hub" of faculty experts and clinicians as well as three one-hour webinars. Our team will engage clinicians and teams from hospital EDs that have and/or are planning to implement MAT in the ED to serve as "spokes", giving them the opportunity to learn together and discuss specific questions and challenging issues through case discussions. Content for the ED MAT didactic sessions in the ECHO program will reflect key educational topics related to initiating MAT in the ED, with specific content to be developed with input from ED and addiction medicine expert consultants, as well as from targeted ED clinicians and staff around the state. If you are interested in these educational opportunities please hold the following dates. If you have questions or would like more information please contact Kayla Cole at firstname.lastname@example.org or tel. 207-620-8526 ext. 1027.
