Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) utilizes portable, easy-to-use, and affordable ultrasound technology that allows for quicker discovery of medical issues right at the point of care. The addition of POCUS in clinical care settings improves provider accuracy, quality of care, and patient outcomes. Research demonstrates the benefits of POCUS technology for improving health equity particularly in rural settings. Practitioners who are both new and experienced at using POCUS are encouraged to join.

Upcoming Didactic Topics Include:

  • POCUS in Austere Environments
  • Using Ultrasound for Undifferentiated Hypotension
  • Bowel Ultrasound
  • Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

About the IUPUI ECHO Center

The IUPUI ECHO Center uses the Project ECHO model to create a peer-to-peer, virtual learning collaborative that increases workforce capacity. Rather than moving patients, ECHO moves knowledge and helps more patients receive the right care, in the right place, at the right time.

Each session features both a didactic presentation shared by a subject matter expert and a de-identified case presentation shared by a participating ECHO learner. Didactic presentations offer timely guidance on best practices in care, while case presentations allow participants 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 a Community Based Bonus.

All healthcare professionals are invited to join ECHO’s virtual sessions as your schedule allows. You can join anytime throughout the programming year!

Project ECHO is a movement to demonopolize knowledge and amplify capacity to provide best practice care and improve health for people all over the world.
