Infographic: Tips for Designing an Inclusive Interprofessional ECHO

Tuesday, December 07, 2021

In partnership with the American Academy of Pediatrics, the CMC CoIIN team at the Center for Innovation in Social Work & Health has released the first in a series of infographics sharing learnings from their work addressing the immediate impact that COVID-19 has on children with medical complexity. 

The project is an “ECHO” (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes), meaning it follows an evidence-based, collaborative model for medical education and peer mentoring that extends the reach of specialty care through group learning and discussion. Its goal is to build capacity for providers and interprofessional teams caring for children with medical complexity during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Check out their first infographic for tips on creating an inclusive space within an ECHO, and the benefits of inclusivity in the learning space:

The Collaborative Improvement and Innovation Network to Advance Care for Children with Medical Complexity (CMC CoIIN) is an HRSA-funded project that aims to improve the quality of life for children with medically complex conditions and their families, and increase the cost-effectiveness of their care. The project is housed at the Center for Innovation in Social Work & Health (CISWH) at Boston University School of Social Work.
