IUPUI / Project ECHO programs
IUPUI ECHO Center invites you to join the Hepatitis C ECHO and the launch of the Cancer ECHO
IUPUI ECHO Center highlights two programs for healthcare professionals to join: Hepatitis C ECHO and Cancer Prevention & Survivorship Care ECHO.
The IUPUI ECHO Center uses the Project ECHO (Extension for Community Health Outcomes) model, a peer-to-peer, virtual learning collaborative to increase workforce capacity. Rather than moving patients, ECHO moves knowledge. By building interdisciplinary communities of practice and capitalizing on the use of case-based learning, ECHO helps more patients receive the right care, in the right place, at the right time.
Participation in ECHO builds leaders who promote best-practices and look for solutions to address health disparities at the local level. Each session features a didactic presentation and a de-identified case presentation shared by a participating ECHO learner to gather recommendations on clinical care and resources to best serve their patients. Presenting a patient case during an ECHO may fulfill community education criteria and count towards your Community Based Bonus.
Two ECHO programs we would like to highlight: the Hepatitis C (HCV) ECHO and the Cancer Prevention & Survivorship Care ECHO series.
Hepatitis C (HCV) ECHO

Physicians, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, peer recovery specialists, and case managers share best practices on how to collaboratively diagnosis, manage, treat patients with Hepatitis B & C, and to address social determinants of health.
