Health Equity and Reigniting Colorectal Cancer Screenings ECHO

About the series

 

 

The American Cancer Society Health Equity and Reigniting Colorectal Cancer Screenings ECHO series will engage 10 to 20 health systems including Federally Qualified Health Centers, community health centers, and integrated delivery systems serving under-resourced communities, with special consideration for systems with lower screening rates. Each session in the five-session series will offer a brief educational lecture, a case presentation, and an opportunity for questions and answers.

 

 

Value to participating health systems

 

Participating health systems will receive coaching and implementation support from trained ACS strategic partnership staff as well as access to messaging and tools about getting screened, and the latest in cancer research. Health systems will also have opportunities to connect with other health systems to share promising practices and challenges as well as support for project implementation.

 

In addition, health systems will connect with national experts to drive real-time solutions for your providers and patients and participate in an ongoing learning community with like-minded health care providers and teams.

 

 

Requirements

 

Participating health systems are asked to build a small, multidisciplinary ECHO team. An ideal team consists of clinical champions and leadership, quality improvement, information technology, and operations staff. At least one team member should join each of the five ECHO sessions and deliver one case presentation over the series. Participants are also asked to complete pre- and post-participation assessments, along with brief post-session polls.
