Over 116 million Americans suffer from chronic pain and over 50% of those will seek care from a primary care provider.
Considering the frequency and severity of chronic pain in our population, we at the Community Health Center, Inc. are proud to announce that Project ECHO Pain Management recently got underway. Our team at CHC has joined forces with the Integrative Pain Center of Arizona in making this incredibly important program a reality. The weekly telemedicine conferences bring behavioral health and primary care providers together with experts in the field to discuss ways to improve the delivery and quality of care to those suffering from chronic pain. To learn a little bit more about Project ECHO Pain Management, take a look at the video posted below:
Project ECHO now conducts four weekly sessions, one each for Hepatitis C, HIV, Pain Management, and Addiction Medicine, and we are excited about its growth and ability to improve the standard of care we already have at CHC. Please stay tuned for more information and updates about Project ECHO.
