We invite your participation in an exciting project that will help you build expertise in understanding sleep problems in children.
 
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 sleep issues in children. Sessions use the Zoom application for videoconferencing.
 
Following the short lecture, participants can present de-identified cases (submitted in advance) which serve as the focal point for in-depth discussions related to sleep issues in children.

The case presentation is a key component in the Project ECHO model and critically important for building and sharing knowledge. We welcome cases that involve common pediatric sleep scenarios. If you would like to present a case, please follow the steps below:

Are you seeking recommendations and best practices for an on-going case or situation your patients and families are experiencing? Complete a case presentation form to discuss the case and next steps with experts and your peers.

Complete the Case Presentation Form, as thoroughly as you can, so that our pediatric sleep expert will have as complete a picture of your case as possible.

The first TeleECHO clinic will occur on Tuesday, January 12th, 2021 at noon (12:00 pm EST).
