Primary Care Partnerships
Primary care in the Champlain LHIN could benefit from participating in ECHO learning community.
Project ECHO uses multi-point videoconferencing to conduct virtual clinics linking expert specialist teams at an academic hub with primary care clinicians in local communities.
In ECHO, primary care clinicians become part of a learning community, where they receive mentoring and feedback from specialists. Together, they manage patient cases so that patients get the care they need. The Center for Addictions & Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto is the hub of the adult MHA ECHO curriculum.
