TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES

Monthly ECHO Series

As part of ongoing education, CARE Network providers are required to participate in monthly ECHO sessions. The ECHO (Extension for Community Health Outcomes) model consists of sessions that include expert presentations and case-based learning. 

Providers must attend at least 6 

 

 

 

Extension for Community Health Outcomes (ECHO) is a unique platform that provides health professionals and those whose work impacts health the opportunity to be part of a community where multidisciplinary experts and peers share knowledge and experience using technology, not proximity, to connect. ECHO series combine the interactive learning and case-based sharing aspects of in-person training with the improved access and convenience of connecting virtually.

Two CARE Network ECHO series will be offered each month-- one for medical providers and the other for behavioral health providers.

The ECHO series will facilitate peer-to-peer learning and create a space for ongoing education. The ECHO platform will also promote working relationships between Designated Providers, Resource Center experts and Mentors, as well as non-medical professional and family experts by allowing ECHO participants to discuss their experiences working in this field. This type of sharing of real-life experiences between the DPs and with Mentors is another important form of ongoing feedback, mentoring, and enhancement of multidisciplinary collaboration.

As part of ongoing education, monthly CARE Network web-based ECHO (Extension for Community Health Outcomes) sessions will be held. Each 1-hour, virtual session consists of a brief presentation on a relevant topic from an expert, followed by case discussion. Participants will have the opportunity to present their own cases to the experts and their peers for discussion, support, and feedback. Designated providers are required to participate in 6 sessions per year. Continuing Education credit will be offered for participation in these sessions up to 12.0 credit hours per year (1 credit per session).

All you need to join an ECHO session is access to internet and a webcam. If you do not have a webcam, please reach out to our team to obtain one carenetwork@ucdenver.edu. For more information on ECHO Colorado visit their website ECHOcolorado.org
