An interprofessional team delivers the program and the curriculum
In addition to the Project ECHO Ontario Skin and Wound Care Team, the teams at Queen’s University and NSWOCC attend the session and lead discussions. Consultants deliver the weekly two-hour ECHO sessions and contribute to preparatory work. These sessions are minimally supported by a core team of 4-6 experts, consisting of at least two physicians, 1-2 wound care nurses and 1-2 allied health professionals. Consultants include personnel with expertise in family medicine, endocrinology, infectious disease, dermatology, orthopedics, rehabilitation and vascular surgery specialists, nursing, foot specialists (chiropody/podiatry/foot care nurses), physiotherapists, occupational therapists, registered dietitians, certified diabetes educators, pharmacists, psychologists, social workers and indigenous healing specialists.
