The American Academy of Pediatrics is recruiting healthcare professionals to join a 7-month ECHO for pediatricians, pediatric specialists, and others who provide medical care to children with spina bifida to increase knowledge, skills and self-efficacy regarding effective strategies and best practices in promoting successful transitional care services and transitional care programs.

Practices will engage in the ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) model, a telementoring platform that leverages video conference technology to connect experts with primary care teams in local communities, fostering an “all teach, all learn” approach.

Who should apply:

  • Spina bifida Clinic Teams
  • Primary Care Providers who care for children with spina bifida
  • Adult care providers who care for patients with spina bifida
  • Pediatric specialists who care for children with spina bifida

Benefits of participating:

  • Improve transition care for youth with spina bifida to the adult care system
  • Increase knowledge regarding best practices for successful transitional care services and formal transitional care programs for children with spina bifida.
  • Network and problem-solve with others
  • Participating pediatricians will have the opportunity to earn American Board of Pediatrics Part 2 Maintenance of Certification (MOC) credit (pending approval) as well as continuing education credits

The first ECHO session will be held November 10, 2021. ECHO sessions will be held on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month from 10:00-11:00 a.m. CT with adjustments for the holidays from November 10, 2021-May 25, 2022
