What is Project ECHO®?

Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a telementoring model developed by the School of Medicine at the University of New Mexico (UNM). Using video-conferencing technology, participants share evidence-based, best practice guidance, and case-based learning with the aim of developing clinicians’ confidence and capacity safely and effectively.


How we are using Project ECHO

We are using video-conferencing technology to share, learn and educate, meaning we are able to exchange knowledge more efficiently. 

We currently have two ECHO networks which we run: palliative care link nurses and pharmacists. 

ECHO sessions take place monthly on a day and time that is convenient to the participants and last between 60 and 90 minutes depending upon their preference. One of the differences between Project ECHO and other more traditional training programmes is that each topic is chosen and agreed upon by the participants themselves and topic experts are then identified to speak at each session.
