Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is an innovative hub and spoke program, designed to create knowledge networks by connecting health care providers with an expert team through a tele-mentoring program using brief lectures and case‐based presentations. These networks have been shown to increase capacity for health care providers to identify, treat, and manage patient care. Using basic, widely available teleconferencing technology, clinical management tools, and case‐based learning, health care providers develop knowledge and self‐efficacy on techniques for management of care and quality improvement. A one-hour ECHO session consists of a short lecture (approx. 15-20 minutes) followed by a case presentation (5 minutes) and discussion. More information about ECHO may be found at www.aap.org/projectecho.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Influenza Preparedness ECHO program will connect a team of pediatric infectious diseases, primary care pediatrics, and pediatric practice management experts with those providing influenza vaccination and primary care to children and youth. The Influenza Preparedness ECHO will be a space to support each other while learning and working through challenges together.
The AAP Influenza Preparedness ECHO will meet twice per month on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of the month from 12:00-1:00pmET. The first session is October 23, 2020.
All ECHO sessions occur virtually using Zoom video conference technology. Participants are expected to join using video as this makes for a more interactive and impactful session.
Space is limited. Applicants will be accepted in the order in which the applications are received.
