Project ECHO, and our Cancer Prevention and Survivorship Care ECHO, is a case-based learning system and guided practice model that increases medical education and workforce capacity to provide best-practice specialty care and reduce health disparities. Healthcare providers from multiple locations will connect with a specialist or team of specialists through video conferencing at regularly scheduled times. ECHO provides a forum for using case presentations to engage experts and learners in an “All Teach, All Learn” conversation. The key to ECHO’s success is moving knowledge, not patients to provide the right care, in the right place, at the right time.
The Cancer ECHO will deliver continuing education and actionable learning to health professionals in order to improve delivery of cutting-edge cancer care. Experts from the Indiana State Department of Health, the Indiana Cancer Consortium, the IU School of Medicine, Riley Hospital, the Indiana Chapter of the American Cancer Society, and the IU Simon Cancer Center will provide up-to-date cancer education and evidence-based strategies to health professionals across the state and support implementation of the Indiana Cancer Control Plan 2021-2022.
These sessions are highly interactive and allow the opportunity to share experiences and become subject matter experts
Cancer ECHO is free to all participants. To participate in this ongoing, interactive, and relevant learning, all you need is access to the Internet. Participating with a webcam is highly encouraged but not required. No cost CME credits will be provided to all participants.
Additional benefits include:
- Enabling providers to practice at the top of their licenses by confidently treating patients with common complex conditions.
- Allowing patients to stay in their local communities and receive treatment from their own healthcare providers in their medical homes.
- Enabling healthcare providers to acquire new skills and competencies.
- Becoming part of a community of practice, increased professional satisfaction, decreased feelings of isolation when practicing in rural and underserved communities.
Clinics take place on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month and no cost CME, CNE, SW, and CHES/MCHES credits will be provided to all participants.
