Project Echo – Geriatrics
Established in 2016, our ECHO program is based on the ECHO model and uses a hub-and-spoke knowledge-sharing approach where expert teams lead virtual teleECHO sessions, amplifying the capacity for providers to care for older adults. Our program’s didactics focus on covering the 4Ms of Age Friendly Care and Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias.
The ECHO model was developed at the University of New Mexico to improve access to specialty care in underserved communities and has spread worldwide. We adapted this model to target trainees (primarily physicians and nurse practitioners).
What Matters, Mobility, Medication, Mentation
We collaborate with clinics and training programs across Washington and Idaho.
Our participants include trainees and practicing clinicians across multiple disciplines.
