The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is implementing a national Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) for Transition, through a cooperative agreement with the US Department of Health and Human Services Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB).
The AAP Transition ECHO serves as a forum for health care professionals to learn how to successfully transition youth from pediatrics to the adult care system. This project uses the ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) model TM, a tele-mentoring hub and spoke platform that leverages technology to bring together specialty care providers at academic medical centers (hub) and primary care providers in local communities (spokes). The AAP Transition ECHO builds a bi-directional virtual knowledge network whereby participants learn from experts and each other, gaining access to evidence-based and capacity-building resources. Each clinic includes a brief presentation by a national transition expert, followed by in-depth, practice-based presentations for discussion, problem-solving guidance and recommendations. All attendees are invited to share and actively participate. Through regular attendance, participants will use quality improvement techniques to support planning and transfer of care to ensure that all youth and young adults, including those with epilepsy, successfully transition into adult care. 

Sessions will occur from October - November 2017 and will last one hour. The frequency of the sessions is to be determined.
