Telehealth Skills ECHO

Based on the Project ECHO model, the Telehealth Skills ECHO is a series of free, interactive case-based virtual mentoring sessions which address a range of topics related to the delivery of telehealth - in a range of healthcare settings.

Telehealth Skills ECHO sessions are open to anyone working in healthcare in Northern Australia who are using or are considering implementing telehealth services.

Monthly sessions will deliver practical training to support the development of skills to support the delivery of clinical telehealth services and consist of:

  • a 10-minute presentation by the Telehealth Skills ECHO subject matter experts
  • Q & A on presentation (open for all participants)
  • a deidentified patient case presentation put forward by one of the Primary Care participants.
  • Q & A on patient case open for all participants to share ideas and experiences
