About the event
Extensions for Community and Health Outcomes (ECHO) is a virtual synchronous educational program that connects experts with healthcare providers in the community to disseminate knowledge using didactic presentations and case-based learning. It has been used as a learning platform for chronic pain in Canada (ON, BC, SK, QC) since 2014. We will discuss the challenges to starting a new ECHO program, the steps to implement a culturally safe program for Indigenous populations, and promoting the collaboration of two specialties, chronic pain and addiction medicine.
