CARE Network Medical ECHO Series - October 2022

October 25, 2022

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.

October's session will focus on the Colorado Hospitals Substance Exposed Newborn Quality Improvement Collaborative (CHoSEN QIC).
