Project ECHO

In partnership with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement and the University of New Mexico Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Options), the Oklahoma Dementia Care Network is facilitating a ECHO for dementia caregivers, including professional healthcare givers, community caregivers and family members. These sessions will be held regularly.

Project ECHO uses a hub-and-spoke telementoring model to move knowledge instead of people. By participating in weekly virtual clinics with teams of specialist mentors, primary care practitioners in rural and underserved areas acquire the expertise they need to treat patient with complex health problems.

These sessions will help caregivers gain important skills and capabilities designed to improve care for Oklahomans living with memory disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
