Chronic Kidney Disease ECHO

Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes


Enrol for the CKD ECHO

ECHO aims to create a community of practice for shared learning and professional support.

Online meetings provide an opportunity for participants to learn best-practice care from our panel of experts and contribute to case discussions.

We welcome all healthcare professionals from metropolitan, rural and regional SA to join the program.

Submit your cases

We welcome all cases, whether they involve common clinical scenarios related to diagnosis and care, or those that involve complex or challenging presentations and patient management scenarios.

Individuals and teams are invited to submit cases for discussion to promote learning and reflection, and improve patient care and outcomes.

Please note that ECHO meetings are not secondary consultations and do not replace specialist referral, where needed.
