Amputation Care ECHO

What is ECHO?

Amputation Care ECHO is a hub and spoke educational, tele-mentoring model that links expert specialist teams at a 'hub' with clinicians at other locations - the 'spokes' of the model. Together, they participate in monthly ECHO sessions to learn new material and discuss case studies. Each Amputation Care ECHO event contains a didactic presentation with time allotted for engaged discussion. Participants serve as mentors and colleagues, sharing their medical knowledge and expertise with clinicians new to amputation or those who do not routinely work with amputation.
