Project ECHO Dementia is a learning model in which front-line care providers from around WA State meet in a web-based virtual conference room with an interdisciplinary panel of experts in memory loss and dementia, offered by the UW Memory and Brain Wellness Center and hosted at the Memory Hub. A brief 15-minute didactic is followed by an hour of case-based learning where everyone at the table is both a teacher and a learner. The Project ECHO® Dementia program makes available recordings/slides from presentations and sessions.
The full list of didactic recordings and resources can be found below. You can search for ECHO sessions within your interest area or by date of didactic:
