How the Program Works

Our mission is to integrate interprofessional specialist teams and community healthcare providers. By providing a convenient online environment to share and discuss best practices, we aim to empower community healthcare providers to safely and effectively care for paediatric patients with specific conditions. Here’s how we do it:

  1. Healthcare providers register for 1-4 curricula, at no cost
  2. Registrants access curated resources and attend sessions
  3. Each session has: a didactic presentation, a patient case presentation, and a discussion
  4. Community healthcare providers take lessons learned back to their practice

About Paediatric Project ECHO

Paediatric Project ECHO aims to connect community healthcare providers to expand knowledge and build capacity in the area of Pain Management, Obesity Management, Palliative Care* and Complex Care. This model uses a combination of interactive videoconferencing, educational presentations, and hands-on workshops to enhance learning and build a supportive community of practice.

All healthcare providers are invited to participate at no cost.

*The Palliative Care program is operated in collaboration with the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO).

Here’s what our participants say:

As I live and work in a smaller centre without quick and easy access to the larger pediatric centres, the virtual model of ECHO allows me to participate regularly while continuing my clinical duties.
