Invitation to join Older Adult ECHO Program - Applications will close October 19!
Maine Quality Counts and the Project ECHO Northern New England Network would like to invite you to join a virtual educational program to support primary care providers and care coordinators from across Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont that treat and manage the care of older adults. The curriculum will focus on common and complex issues in the geriatric patient population, including the diagnosis and management of cognitive impairment, agitated and psychotic behaviors, depression, sleep disorders, frailty, functional decline, falls, and polypharmacy. The importance of working with and supporting caregivers will also be addressed, as will complex care issues involving multiple disorders and social factors affecting wellbeing and function.
Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is an evidence-based method developed by researchers at the University of New Mexico. The ECHO model™ links teams of interdisciplinary specialists with primary care clinicians. During teleECHO™ sessions, experts mentor and share their expertise across a virtual network via case-based learning, enabling primary care practice teams to treat patients with complex conditions in their own communities.
Meetings will be held virtually using an online platform (Zoom) on the 4th Thursday of each month from 11:30 to 1:00 PM, beginning October 25th. The 90-minute virtual learning session will include a patient case presentation and a brief lecture with Q&A. Participants can receive 1.5 CME credits for each virtual learning session attended.
Attached is a program overview highlighting the intended audience, learning objectives, participation commitment, and program schedule, as well as a PDF of the application. Space will be limited to 10 practice teams from each State (ME, NH, an VT) and if interested, please apply early. Rural practices are encouraged to apply. Applications will close October 19!
