Addiction Medicine & Psychosocial Interventions

CAMH and St. Michael’s Hospital are excited to bring to you ECHO Ontario Addiction Medicine and Psychosocial Interventions (AMPI).
ECHO Ontario AMPI aims to help healthcare providers build capacity in the treatment and management of addictions. The project works to
empower healthcare providers to use evidence-based best practices to reduce the need for specialist visits, improving
the quality of care for patients seeking treatment for addictions and related disorders in Ontario’s primary care settings.

Sample Curriculum Schedule

ECHO Ontario Addiction Medicine and Psychosocial Interventions developed this curriculum based
on the analysis of multiple needs assessments, conducted with provincial primary care providers. Flex sessions have been
included in the curriculum to address additional learning needs identified throughout the ECHO cycle.
