3:00PM – 4:00PM ET
Please note this TeleECHO program is 3:00PM Eastern, 2:00PM, Central, 1:00PM Mountain and 12:00PM Pacific.
The AxSpA TeleECHO series will explore strategies to promptly recognize, diagnose, and manage patients with axial spondyloarthritis (AxSpA). This TeleECHO series provides an interactive platform that includes didactic programming in addition to case-based discussion on the selection of therapeutic options and the management of patients with AxSpA.
Project ECHO® is a lifelong learning and guided practice model that revolutionizes medical education and exponentially increases workforce capacity to provide best-practice specialty care and reduce health disparities. The heart of the ECHO model™ is its expansive knowledge-sharing network, led by expert teams who use multi-point videoconferencing to conduct virtual clinics with community providers. In this way, ECHO® fosters problem solving and interactive case discussion amongst doctors, nurses, and other clinicians, imparting invaluable insight to providing excellent specialty care to patients in their own communities.
The Project ECHO® format fosters dialogue and asking any questions you may have on the topic or a patient case in a HIPAA compliant manner is encouraged.
