Recognition and reporting of child abuse and neglect by ED providers saves children’s lives

​We would like to invite your ED to participate in an innovative performance improvement/educational program targeting this topic— Project ECHO

 

What will our ED “get” for participating?

ECHO is a non-clinical application of telemedicine involving: 

1) Didactic presentations by interdisciplinary group of specialists 

2) In-depth case-based presentations by community clinicians for feedback and recommendations 

3) Access to evidence-based educational resources and a community of practice (experts and community providers learn from           one another).  

4) ECHO has improved patient outcomes in conditions ranging from Hepatitis C to pediatric mental health. 

 

What is the commitment from our ED to participate?

Designation of “pediatric champion(s) who will participate in ECHO meetings every XXX weeks/months. These individuals should be MD, RN, APRN or PA (however techs, SW, and others can participate). 

 

Additional details about the program available if you are interested or we can arrange a call to answer any questions that you and/or your ED leadership may have.  For more information, contact ctemsc@gmail.com
