Project ECHO® Mental Health & Substance Use in Interior Health of 2019, was the first ECHO launched in British Columbia. ECHO is an interactive educational videoconference program, linking an inter-professional expert team with healthcare providers. Our goal is to link primary care providers in a supportive community that will enhance their skills and confidence to manage their challenging patients safely and effectively. 

MHSU ECHO runs regular sessions with a short didactic followed by a de-identified patient case presented by participants.  Case presenters receive recommendations from an inter-professional specialist team and other community providers. ECHO sessions are an approved group learning activity (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification program of The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and certified by the College of Family Physicians of Canada and approved by UBC CPD for up to 1.5 Mainpro+ credits per session.

Sessions are bi-weekly on Wednesdays, 3:30- 5:00 pm PST.
