What is ECHO?
ECHO is a ‘Hub’ and ‘Spoke’ model of knowledge dissemination and capacity building, which aims to spread knowledge between Academic Health Science Centres and the frontline of community care. Project ECHO® was created by Dr. Sanjeev Arora at the University of New Mexico in 2002 and has grown to over 130 hubs around the world. This project is fully funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and does not require any payment from primary care provider sites. Participants may qualify for continuing professional development credits.
ECHO COE Cycle 4 Sessions will be held weekly on Wednesdays from 3:00-4:30 pm, from April 10, 2019 to July 17, 2019. The 90 minute sessions include a 15-20 minute didactic presentation related to care of older adults, followed by one to two de-identified patient case presentations by participants.
ECHO Sessions will include didactic presentations on topics such as:
- MOVEMENT DISORDERS
- MEDICAL CANNABIS
- RESPONSIVE BEHAVIORS / BPSD
- MOOD DISORDERS
- SLEEP DISORDERS
