Project ECHO Training on Sickle Cell Disease

Project ECHO Training

Plain Text Flyer

A Project Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes (ECHO)® training will be held on October 23-24, 2017, in Atlanta, Georgia.

The training will be led by the American Academy of Pediatrics, a Project ECHO Superhub, and will be designed specifically for organizations interested in using the ECHO model™ in their own settings to improve the health care of individuals living with sickle cell disease (SCD). The ECHO model increases access to specialty treatment in rural and underserved areas by building capacity amongst front-line physicians to identify, treat, and manage the care of patients with complex conditions.

The training provides the following:

  • Overview of the ECHO model and the importance of following the protocol in achieving success
  • Overview of key skills and requirements needed to properly use the model
  • Framework needed to develop a teleECHO (virtual) clinic for patients with SCD
  • Information about using the ECHO model to develop a state-wide surveillance (health monitoring) system
  • Presentations from groups who have already used the ECHO model to improve care of patients with SCD
  • Opportunity to network with the other training session attendees

    WHEN:
    October 23, 2017 from 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
    October 24, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

    WHERE:
    Indian Creak Recreation Area
    900 South Indian Creek Drive
    Stone Mountain, GA 30083

    Attendance is free. However, space is limited and will be available in order of response. Please RSVP by August 25th to Mandip Kaur at wvx6@cdc.gov and include a brief description of your organization’s proposed strategy for using Project ECHO to improve care for patients with SCD.

    Please note that this event will take place during the two days preceding the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America’s 45th Annual National Convention. These two events are not connected.
