Emergency Medicine ECHO - Series 2

Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes

Enrol for the Emergency Medicine ECHO

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

This is Series Two of the Emergency Medicine ECHO Program. To access the resources from Series 1 please click here

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

Individuals and teams are invited to submit cases for clinical debriefing to promote learning and reflection, and identify opportunities for improvements in workflows and processes to improve subsequent patient experiences and minimise the risk of future adverse outcomes.

All healthcare professionals working in emergency care settings from across South Australia are welcome to join this FREE 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.
