I am taking part in #MyEDSChallenge and #MyHSDChallenge with the Ehlers Danlos Society. Since May is EDS awareness month, every day I will be sharing something about myself and my EDS journey to drive further awareness and community.
Day 30- What is EDS Echo? 🦓❤️
EDS ECHO a program for healthcare professionals across all disciplines who want to improve their ability to care for people with EDS, HSD and associated symptoms and conditions.
Project ECHO addresses population health in a scalable way — moving knowledge instead of patients via telementoring and collaborative care.
The heart of the ECHO model™ is its hub-and-spoke knowledge-sharing networks, led by expert specialist teams. The ECHO model is not “telemedicine” where specialists assume the care of the patient; it is a guided model aimed at practice improvement, in which providers retain responsibility for patients, and gain increasing independence as skills, confidence, and self-efficacy grow.
Participants are able to share their cases and questions in the sessions, and are guided to further educational materials and support. CME/CPD credits are available at no charge to participants. If you are a professional that wants to help spread awareness and learn more about EDS & HSD, this is how you get involved!!
