How the Program Works.

Our mission is to support and connect interprofessional community healthcare providers. By delivering a convenient environment to share and discuss best practices, we aim to empower community healthcare providers to safely and effectively care for patients with epilepsy. Here’s how we do it:

  1. Healthcare providers register for any of the four (4) curricula, at no cost
  2. Registrants attend sessions and access resources
  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 the Program.

Project ECHO® Ontario: Epilepsy Across the Lifespan is a technology-enabled, collaborative, CPD-accredited learning program that partners community health care providers and epilepsy specialists to enhance care for children, adolescents and adults living with epilepsy. Our epilepsy interdisciplinary team connects with providers in communities across Ontario via videoconferencing for TeleECHO® sessions, usually held over the lunch hour. Sessions can be accessed from a smart device or laptop from anywhere with an internet connection, for ease of participation. The format of the TeleECHO® session leverages interactive case-based learning, with de-identified cases presented by community health care providers. The session begins with a quick 10-minute didactic talk delivering relevant clinical pearls on a topic of interest.
