Neurology ECHO Network
Join the Neurology ECHO Network to share and learn evidence-based, best-practice management with a multi-disciplinary team.
This ECHO Program aims to support the rollout of SA Health's Clinical Prioritisation Criteria, expected to be released and implemented in March 2022. The CPCs are clinical decision-making support tools that assist in ensuring patients referred to our tertiary hospitals are clinically categorised and accepted based on standardised statewide clinical referral criteria.
Join the Neurology ECHO Network
Complete the enrolment form to become a member of this network
If you are from outside of South Australia or are interested in joining a neurology ECHO session as an observer, please email email@example.com .
Whilst we endeavour to enrol all applicants, priority will be given to those located in rural/remote South Australia and those with a patient case to present if places are full.
RACGP members will be eligible to receive 40 points (Cat 1) for a Reviewing Performance activity under the Peer-Group Learning model.
ACRRM members will be eligible to receive Case Discussion Credits under the Performance Review Category.
Points and certificates will be sent/allocated at the end of the network ECHO series. For more information, visit our ECHO Homepage.
At the end of the Neurology ECHO Network series, participants will be able to:
1. Assess and diagnose patients presenting with various neurological disorders or symptoms.
2. Apply a multidisciplinary approach to the management of patients with various neurological disorders or symptoms.
3. Demonstrate knowledge of the local neurology referral criteria and pathways.

Submit your cases
Network members are encouraged to contribute a case presentation during the Neurology ECHO Network series.
Download and complete the Neurology case template and submit to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
The benefits of presenting a case during an ECHO session include receiving advice and feedback on current strategies, gaining perspectives from a multi-disciplinary professional support network, and arming you with the knowledge and confidence to improve patient care.
Please note that ECHO sessions are not secondary consultations and do not replace specialist referral, where needed.
