Project ECHO Session (Behavioral Health Track)

ECHO uses a “learning by doing model” in bi-weekly one hour video conferences, where primary care providers present de-identified cases to colleagues and specialists at the hub site. They then receive treatment suggestions from the entire community of practice. Led by a panel of mental health experts, this 8-session training will create a dialogue among providers to discuss best practices for identifying and treating behavioral health issues, and get feedback on difficult patient cases.

Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a learning and guided practice model that revolutionizes medical education and exponentially increased workforce capacity to provide best-practice specialty care and reduce health disparities. The heart of the ECHO model is its hub-and-spoke knowledge-sharing networks, led by expert teams (hubs) who use multi-point video conferencing to conduct virtual clinics with community providers (spokes.) In this way, primary care doctors, nurses and other clinicians learn to provide excellent specialty care to patients in their own communities. 

Led by a panel of mental health experts, this 8-session training will create a dialogue among providers to discuss best practices for identifying and treating behavioral health issues, and get feedback on difficult patient cases.
