Real-Time Sharing, Learning, and Collaboration 

In partnership with Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes), a video tele-mentoring platform that spreads knowledge through real-time sharing, learning, and access to subject matter experts, the COVID-9 Best Practices in Nursing Homes initiative identifies and shares proven protocols and lessons learned that long-term care professionals can utilize in the preparedness, management, and treatment of the novel coronavirus. 
Through Project ECHO's innovative Zoom format, participants convene twice per month to learn about techniques to manage and lead during a crisis, ways to improve eldercare, and support each other through common knowledge and lived experiences. 
All sessions are FREE to nursing home providers, thanks to a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
