What is Project ECHO® and how does it work? 

Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is an interactive knowledge sharing model, with a focus on peer-to-peer learning, collaborative problem solving, and teaching. Via an online platform ECHO® opens the channels for participants in rural and remote locations to evidence-based learnings and knowledge from a panel of topic experts and multi-disciplinary peers.   

Each week participants log in to a Zoom session which consists of a short presentation from a panel expert, with a question time.  A case is then presented by a participant followed by an interactive discussion led by the panel facilitator.
