The Project ECHO model of continuing education leverages the power of all participants learning and sharing together. ECHO sessions consist of a brief educational presentation with Q&A, followed by group discussion on de-identified patient cases submitted by participants. As such, it is a guided, virtual learning community aimed at supporting attendees in caring for their clients.
