Abstract:
Extension for Community Health care Outcomes (ECHO) is a model for
professional training and support now being used widely in clinical health
care. ECHO provides training for health care professionals in their own
communities by creating peer learning groups connected by live bidirectional
video communications. Topic experts lead the sessions, but
most of the learning occurs through case presentations and consultations.
Although similar to telemedicine, ECHO differs in that the responsibility for
patient care remains with the primary care learners. The Rocky Mountain
Public Health Training Center (RMPHTC) – which supports training for the
public health workforce in the six-state region of Colorado, Utah, Wyoming,
Montana, and North and South Dakota – has adapted the ECHO health care
model for public health training, using the ECHO learning principles of
creating and supporting peer learning networks connected by live bidirectional
video, and employing a case-based learning approach. The
public health ECHO trainings are facilitated by subject matter experts,
focus on real-life public health challenges, and use programs or scenarios
within communities as “cases.” This article looks at early success in using
the ECHO model for public health training on topics such as local public
health agency quality improvement, patient navigation, food safety,
tobacco control, obesity prevention, tuberculosis management, and HIV
prevention. The RMPHTC continues to refine its implementation of the
ECHO learning model across a wide range of public health and population
health topics, and shows great promise as a framework for regional public
health training.
