Echo Didactics

Mirna Becevic, Rachel Mutrux, Karen Edison
INTRODUCTION: The University of Missouri, Missouri Telehealth Network has partnered with the State of Missouri to build provider capacity and increase healthcare outcomes in rural Missouri in six disease states. The Show-Me ECHO project was created in 2014, continuously going through program evaluation. METHODS: Data on participants' attendance, case presentations, awarded CMEs and self-efficacy are collected and evaluated. In addition, cost-savings data will be available after the first year of the project...

BACKGROUND: Goal-directed ultrasound protocols have been developed to facilitate efficiency, throughput, and patient care. Hands-on instruction and training workshops have been shown to positively impact ultrasound training. OBJECTIVES: We describe a novel undifferentiated chest pain goal-directed ultrasound algorithm-focused education workshop for the purpose of enhancing emergency medicine resident training in ultrasound milestones competencies. METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study performed at an academic medical center...

OBJECTIVES: US nursing homes care for increasing numbers of residents with dementia and associated behavioral problems. They often lack access to specialized clinical expertise relevant to managing these problems. Project ECHO-AGE provides this expertise through videoconference sessions between frontline nursing home staff and clinical experts at an academic medical center. We hypothesized that ECHO-AGE would result in less use of physical and chemical restraints and other quality improvements in participating facilities...

OBJECTIVES: The goal of this study was to determine if emergency physicians (EPs) can correctly perform a bedside diastology examination (DE) and correctly grade the level of diastolic function with minimal additional training in echocardiography beyond what is learned in residency. We hypothesize that EPs will be accurate at detecting and grading diastolic dysfunction (DD) when compared to a criterion standard interpretation by a cardiologist. METHODS: We conducted a prospective, observational study on a convenience sample of adult patients who presented to an urban emergency department with a chief concern of dyspnea...

BACKGROUND: With the aging hepatitis C cohort and increasing prevalence of fatty liver disease, the burden on primary care providers (PCPs) to care for patients with liver disease is growing. In response, the Veterans Administration implemented initiatives for primary care-specialty referral to increase PCP competency in complex disease management. The Specialty Care Access Network-Extension of Community Healthcare Outcomes (SCAN-ECHO) program initiative was designed to transfer subspecialty knowledge to PCPs through case-based distance learning combined with real-time consultation...

BACKGROUND: Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is a complex endeavor involving both motor and cognitive skills. Current training requires extended time in the clinical setting. Application of an integrated approach for TEE training including simulation could facilitate acquisition of skills and knowledge. METHODS: Echo-naive nonattending anesthesia physicians were offered Web-based echo didactics and biweekly hands-on sessions with a TEE simulator for 4 weeks...

INTRODUCTION: Project ECHO Pain, the innovative telementoring program for health professionals, was developed in 2009 at the University Of New Mexico Health Sciences Center to fill considerable gaps in pain management expertise. Substantive continuing education for clinicians who practice in rural and underserved communities convenes weekly by means of telehealth technology. Case-based learning, demonstrations, and didactics are incorporated into the interprofessional program that helps to improve pain management in the primary care setting...

BACKGROUND: ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a telehealth educational program that uses videoconference technology to train community-based primary care providers (PCP's) on the management of complex, chronic diseases. The main components of ECHO are didactics, case presentations, and case-based learning. ECHO was developed using the key principles of Social Cognitive Theory, Situated Learning Theory, and Community of Practice Theory. OBJECTIVES: In a prior study, we implemented an ECHO curriculum to improve management of resistant hypertension...

BACKGROUND: Limited transthoracic echocardiogram (LTTE) represents an attractive alternative to formal transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE), because it does not require an echocardiogram machine. Our hypothesis is that trauma attendings can learn LTTE effectively with minimal training. METHODS: Seven attendings at a Level I trauma center received didactic and hands-on training in LTTE and performed this test on hypotensive patients to evaluate for contractility, fluid status, and pericardial effusion...

INTRODUCTION: High-fidelity cardiopulmonary simulators have proven promising in various areas of medical education but have yet to be studied in Family Medicine training. METHODS: A 2-hour curriculum, combining didactic and simulator exposure, and addressing common valvular pathologies, was offered to post-graduate year 1 and 2 Family Medicine residents. Residents' abilities to describe and diagnose four simulated murmurs were assessed before the teaching sessions and 2 to 4 weeks after...

INTRODUCTION: Echocardiographic images were integrated into patient simulation (PS)-based resident training with a goal of highlighting the applicability and limitations of pure pressure-based measurements in the management of different disease states. METHODS: Relevant echocardiographic images were selected, categorized, and sequenced to best represent specific hemodynamic changes and incorporated into a Powerpoint slideshow. Appropriate PS scenarios were then created to represent the hemodynamic changes seen with the selected pathophysiologic states...

PURPOSE: Because there is little information about the training that general internists require to perform hand-carried cardiac ultrasonography (HCU), we studied the rate of learning of a group of medical residents performing HCU after minimal formal training. METHODS: Medical residents on the inpatient services at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center received formal training in HCU consisting of 15-30 minutes of didactic instruction about the principles of echocardiography, followed by ongoing one-on-one instruction in performing HCU and subsequent ongoing one-on-one training from a certified echocardiography technician as they were doing scans...
