Show-Me ECHO at the University of Missouri is offering an education program to improve care for patients with Hepatitis C. The Hep C ECHO integrates medical, pharmacological and psychological considerations into the treatment of patients in rural settings.
ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) uses videoconferencing to connect an interdisciplinary team of experts with primary care providers. They collaborate in case-based learning sessions to help primary care providers develop advanced skills and best practices, which in turn increases the availability and quality of patient care.
Enrollment is occurring now for sessions that will begin September 1st. The sessions are held the first and third Friday of the month from Noon to 1:00 p.m. Register now and learn more by visiting http://medicine2.missouri.edu/show-me-echo/clinics/hepatitis-c/. No cost CME for health care professionals is available.
