Toxicology ECHO: Combining Distance Learning with Telehealth
Upstate New York Poison Center’s New Toxicology ECHO Project
The mission of Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is to develop the capacity to safely and effectively treat chronic, common and complex diseases in rural and undeserved areas and to monitor outcomes of this treatment.
In partnering with Project ECHO our goal for the Upstate New York Poison Center’s Toxicology teleECHO is to assist clinicians who lack access to medical and clinical toxicologists by addressing new and emerging trends in drug use and substance abuse; complications of pharmaceutical and over-the counter drugs; as well as environmental threats to our communities. Instructional presentations and case discussions will stimulate meaningful conversation and create an environment where we all learn.
Our Toxicology teleECHO clinics happen the first Tuesday of every month from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Please contact Deidre Keefe, the ECHO Project Manager, if you are interested in participating and/or have any questions about the program. Once she is made aware of your interest she will send along a welcome letter that details the program, technical requirements, clinic outline and call-in information.
