Project ECHO
Join free online virtual learning sessions with Rural EMS/Paramedicine experts biweekly starting Thursday, Sept. 3, 2020 at 12 p.m. Using proven adult learning techniques and interactive video technology, the ECHO Model™ connects groups of community providers with specialists in regular real-time collaborative sessions.

The sessions, designed around case-based learning and mentorship, help local workers gain the expertise required to provide needed services. By providing case consultations and brief presentations, experts in mental health, substance abuse, prevention, and wellness will enhance first responders’ knowledge and skills.

Project Echo uses case presentations as a component in their model of building and sharing knowledge. Participants are encouraged to submit cases that involves common EMS/Paramedicine scenarios related to system or challenging scenarios.
