Project SCOPE is a training initiative intended to identify and train practitioners in current and emerging knowledge and evidence-based promising practices in screening, monitoring, and care for children diagnosed with neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) or neonatal opiate withdrawal syndrome (NOWS), or who are suspected of being impacted by opioid use and related trauma exposure.

The WVU Center for Excellence in Disabilities (CED) has received funding to implement this national training initiative using the Project ECHOTM virtual professional development model for a second cohort.

Project SCOPE uses a cohort model where interdisciplinary team members from education, medical and community settings collaborate to provide didactic and case presentations to have an opportunity to problem-solve with peers across the state. A cohort community allows participants to network, develop relationships and learn from others who are serving similar populations.
