Project ECHO (Extensions for Community Health Outcomes) Ontario Skin and Wound offers evidence-based mentorship and case-based learning on skin and wound care at no cost to Ontario health care providers. Project ECHO is based on a Hub and Spoke model. A resource team (Hub) comprising of physicians, nurses and allied health providers provide community partners (Spokes), with guidance on patients with complex skin and wound care needs.

Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits will be rewarded to physicians.

A Spoke can be one or more health providers gathered at:

- A Family Health Team
- An Aboriginal Health Centre or a Community Health Centre
