Chronic Pain & Opioid Stewardship

ECHO Pain’s goal is to support primary care providers’ diagnosis, and management of their pain patients. 


Program learning objectives: 

  • Interpret comprehensive assessments to make an accurate and timely pain diagnosis, plan treatment and follow-up. 

  • Employ assessment techniques to determine origin, track evolution, and support treatment of chronic pain. 

  • Self-regulate attitudes and beliefs about patient presentations to provide safe and effective chronic pain management. 

  • Develop comfort level, self-efficacy in managing chronic pain. 

Develop ability to mentor and be mentored by colleagues in a community of practice that ultimately benefits the patient.
