from the Children’s Health Queensland Hospital and Health Service

In rural, remote and under-served areas, many children and young people are not getting the care they need, when they need it, for complex but treatable conditions.

Project ECHO® aims to support teams caring for children with complex and chronic conditions using a virtual, case based learning platform.

The ‘Childhood Overweight & Obesity’ Project ECHO® weekly program will start on Monday, May 9th  (x 4 weeks) from 8-9am (Brisbane time).

Project ECHO® connects primary care teams, education and human service professionals with experts, using free, on-line and interactive case-based learning sessions.

Project ECHO® encourages ‘all teach, all learn’ for participants to share knowledge, discuss cases, and develop new skills.

Connect with them for free, from your home or office, using any device with an internet connection & a webcam.

Expressions of interest for future programs are also welcome:

• Kids Behavioural & Mental Health*
• Paediatric Persistent Pain*
• Clubfoot and other Foot Anomalies
• Type 1 Diabetes

*GPs may apply for Category 1 CPD points, accredited by RACGP/ACRRM. Conditions apply. Medicare rebates are also available for GP case presentations.
