CARE Network Medical ECHO Series - March 2023

March 28, 2023

This training will provide medical CARE Network designated providers with evidence-based guidelines for care and improve both access and quality of care for patients. Providers will have the opportunity to learn new referral processes and system-based protocols for working with other family-serving agencies, such as social services, law enforcement and the courts. A major goal of the ECHO sessions will be to promote interdisciplinary practice and collaboration among systems. Sessions will also include case presentations and discussion.

March's session with Denise Abdoo, PhD, MSN, CPNP, will focus on CDC changes to STI treatment guidelines.
