Rural EMS Project ECHO Clinic: Developing a Community Paramedicine Program

ECHO logo®.jpg

The Florida Rural Health Association along with Project ECHO are working to support first responders such as firefighters, EMS, medical transport personnel, and law enforcement officers, in their roles on the frontlines of America's. These sessions will help you build expertise in the development and management of a community paramedicine program.

What is Project ECHO?

Using proven adult learning techniques and interactive video technology, the ECHO Model™ connects groups of community providers with specialists in regular real-time collaborative sessions. The sessions, designed around case-based learning and mentorship, help local workers gain the expertise required to provide needed services. By providing case consultations and brief presentations, experts in mental health, substance abuse, prevention, and wellness will enhance first responders’ knowledge and skills. We hope to teach, learn, and share best practices across the communities of first responders and to assist them in building self-efficacy.

The ongoing series of TeleECHO clinics will consist of hour-long sessions starting at noon (12:00 pm EST). The clinic begins with a 20-minute lecture on a specific topic relevant to paramedicine. Sessions use the Zoom application for videoconferencing.
