Medical providers across Alabama can connect with autism experts at Children’s of Alabama through a program called Project ECHO: Autism.
The program's mission is to create a virtual learning network with real-time access to autism and behavioral health experts in a structured environment to promote excellence in pediatric clinical care, patient safety and education for all healthcare practitioners and care teams throughout the state of Alabama.
Continuing education is available for each session. Providers can register by calling Charlene Rhodes at 205-638-9254 or email email@example.com. Internet access and a web-enabled camera via smartphone, tablet or computer are all that is required. Each session runs 90 minutes.
Led by Pediatric Endocrinology Fellow Shelly Mercer, MD, FAAP, and Board-Certified Pediatric Endocrinologist Gail Mick, MD, the bi-weekly virtual teleECHO clinics provide mentoring, as well as patient case studies. Each one-hour clinic pairs brief, evidence-based didactic education with de-identified case presentations to enhance learning.
All pediatric providers and staff including: pediatricians, family physicians, PAs, nurse practitioners, nurses and MAs are welcome to participate.
