Weitzman ECHO Complex Integrated Pediatrics (August 23, 2023)
Weitzman ECHO Complex Integrated Pediatrics connects primary care medical and behavioral health providers nationally with a multidisciplinary team of specialists in complex pediatric care. The Complex Integrated Pediatrics clinic uses twice-monthly videoconferencing sessions to explore a variety of topics designed to improve the quality of care and clinical outcomes for underserved children and adolescents. Experts from Community Health Center, Inc., the School-Based Health Alliance, and rotating guest specialists present on key issues and provide recommendations on challenging cases posed by participants. The clinic is designed to emphasize the integration and collaboration between medical and behavioral health providers, reducing variations in care. Participants develop new clinical competencies and confidence with complex pediatric cases. The one year curriculum addresses topics such as pediatric obesity, school violence, anxiety, asthma, dermatology, and suicidality.
Weitzman Institute is pleased to announce that this ECHO is being offered as part of the Telehealth Technology-Enabled Learning Program (TTELP) in order to improve rural health outcomes.
This ECHO meets on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month at 12pm ET / 9am PT.
