ECHO Featured Research Article Cancer Prevention and Survivorship ECHO Series Year 3 Launch

Next week begins a new year of the Cancer ECHO program at the IUPUI ECHOCenter. The Cancer ECHO has been pushed back and will launch virtually via Zoom on January 18, 2021 at 12:00 p.m.

Project 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.

All are welcome to start the program at any time! 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. Each ECHO clinic will be archived so registered participants can see what they missed!

Please feel free to share this information and registration link with your friends and colleagues. For questions or more information, please contact Mary Robertson by email (mary@indianacancer.org), or visit our FAQs page and the IU ECHO Center website.

The ECHO team is looking for additional case study presentations! 

Case studies are a unique opportunity to share de-identified patient cases* with other providers on the call. Providers from all disciplines share recommendations for best practices to improve patient outcomes. By integrating a collaborative approach to care, patients receive high-quality management and treatment of their pain.

*No protected health information (PHI)is ever shared in our ECHO sessions.

Cancer prevention, screening, and survivorship ECHO: A pilot experience with an educational Telehealth program

The Cancer Screening, Prevention, and Survivorship ECHO was built to address multiple points of need across the cancer continuum.

The Project ECHO platform is a validated telehealth education platform that has the potential to impact cancer care at multiple points along the cancer continuum at the regional level. After launching in 2019, the program operated for 1 year without significant deviations from the ECHO framework. Given the sustained and recurrent participation, coupled with the positive feedback from participant surveys, the ECHO launch and implementation was successful.
