Hosted by project ECHO
Baycrest and the North East Specialized Geriatric Centre, in partnership with Alzheimer Society (Ontario and Sudbury-Manitoulin North Bay and Districts) invite you to join the Dementia Series of our ECHO: Care of the Elderly (COE) program. Open to health care providers of all professions, this weekly tele-education program builds skills and capacity in the care of older adults.
- Project ECHO, which stands for Extension of Community Health Outcomes, was created by Dr. Sanjeev Arora at the University of New Mexico. Project ECHO follows an “all teach, all learn” model of knowledge dissemination and capacity building, exchanging knowledge between academic health science centres and frontline community care partners. It facilitates the sharing of knowledge in multiple directions: from experts to primary care providers; between primary care providers; and from primary care providers to experts. This model is appropriate for all healthcare providers and has been successfully replicated throughout the United States, Canada and globally.
Each ECHO session will include a short presentation by specialists on specific topics of interest relevant to the care of older adults, followed by cases presented by the learning partners. Feedback and recommendations are provided by the health resource team as well as other learning partners.
- Any primary care providers who want to expand their skills and build capacity in the care of older adults can become a learning partner, either individually or as a team. All health care professionals are welcome to join, including physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, dietitians, and others.
- This project is fully funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and there is no cost to participants.
