Abstract

in English, French

There is a need to bring specialized medical expertise to rural and remote areas. Project ECHO offers a method to move knowledge from specialists in academic centres using videoconference, case-base learning, and best-practices knowledge sharing. Ontario has implemented ECHO since 2014 and has demonstrated favourable outcomes among primary care clinicians.
