Project ECHO

We’re excited to join Project ECHO as a hub to deliver case-based learning for primary care providers. This allows Future Health Today to develop a series of live, online collaborative education and information sessions in which disease specialists can support on-the-ground practitioners to manage complex patients. The hub and spoke model brings best practice care to the front line and enables faster intervention at the community level.

Upcoming Project ECHO sessions:

Could my patient with anaemia have cancer?
7-8pm AEST, Thursday 15th July 2021 via Zoom

This event is for GPs and practice nurses interested in identifying people that may be at risk of an undiagnosed cancer. In this Project ECHO session, Prof Jon Emery will present the risk of undiagnosed cancer in patients with anaemia, and the evidence behind it. With the aid of a clinical case, we will also discuss the pathways to referral and appropriate follow-up of patients with anaemia.
