Program Registration

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) in partnership with the Epilepsy Foundation of America (EFA) is implementing a national Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) on students with seizures, funded by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). 

The Managing Students with Seizures ECHO will serve as a forum for school nurses and other relevant school personnel to increase knowledge and self-efficacy around managing students with seizures utilizing the ECHO model, a tele-mentoring program designed to create a community of learners by bringing together health care providers and experts in topical areas, fostering an "all teach, all learn" approach. This program aims to build a bi-directional virtual knowledge network whereby school nurses will learn from experts and each other, gaining access to evidence-based and capacity-building resources to improve access to quality care provided to students with seizures. Each ECHO session includes a brief presentation by a national expert, followed by an in-depth student/system-based case presentation submitted by participants for discussion, problem-solving, guidance and recommended follow-up. All attendees are strongly encouraged to actively participate during each virtual ECHO session. This includes enabling video and audio components of the videoconferencing technology to ensure active engagement. Technical assistance will be provided prior and throughout the launch of the program.  
 
There will be a total of 8 ECHO sessions held regularly between January and June 2021 for 1 hour each. Each session will allow up to 75 participants. 
  •  The Managing Students with Seizures ECHO: The Importance of School Nurses will be held on Thursdays at 4:30 pm EST.
