UW ECHO in Geriatrics

discusses “Supporting Person-Centered Care” in 2018

  • Creating and supporting a state-wide geriatric care community of practice. 

  • Build your expertise in geriatric care through regular consultation with a specialty team and network of colleagues.

Project ECHO is a model for lifelong medical learning and collaborative practice that links front-line healthcare providers with specialist care teams to manage patients who have chronic conditions requiring complex care.  It is transforming the way medical knowledge is shared and translated into everyday practice – and, in the process, enabling thousands of people in remote and medically underserved communities to get care they couldnt’t easily get before, if at all.  Through the UW ECHO® in Geriatrics network, sponsored by the Wyoming Center on Aging, healthcare professionals throughout the state will have the opportunity to receive best-practice recommendations for consideration in management of their geriatric patients by presenting their challenging cases for discussion and feedback to a network of colleagues in the state as well as a specialist care team.  Each ECHO network will also feature a brief didactic on a variety of important topics related to geriatric care.   Objectives: Support a network of geriatric care practitioners; create hubs of geriatric expertise in Wyoming; and provide support to providers who care for geriatric patients.

Professional Education Credits are available, and PARTICIPATION IS FREE
