Agenda Highlights- CKF Presenters Shane Hudson and Larry Black.

Why Project ECHO Works – 360 Degree Perspective

This session will explore how Kansas healthcare providers can learn the latest evidenced based best practice suggestions or new guidelines – without leaving their office.   Practicing health care professionals can develop a relationship with a team of inter-disciplinary specialists and each other during office hours.  Project ECHO (Extension for Community Heathcare Outcomes) utilizes videoconferencing to build a collaborative learning experience.
