About this Series:

The ETSU Quillen College of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics is developing a tele-mentoring program for primary care providers using the Project ECHO model (visit the American Academy of Pediatrics Project ECHO web page by clicking here), which is structured around a series of interactive video conferences between the specialist (the hub) and multiple primary care providers (the spokes).  The content of the hub-spoke interactive video conference series is designed by primary care providers to make sure the content is relevant to their practice. 

The regular interactive hub-spoke video conferences (using simple video-conferencing software that can be used on any desktop computer or mobile device) will consist of:

  • Short didactic presentations by the specialist on a pediatric condition
  • Followed by case presentations by the primary care participants
  • Followed by interactive discussion between the specialist and primary care providers 
  • CME or other educational credit is offered by the ETSU Office of CME

Didactic and discussion will focus on the diagnosis and management of common pediatric conditions that are also commonly referred for specialty evaluation (e.g., seizures, headache, asthma, diabetes, growth disorders, etc.).   The goal is to increase the knowledge base and comfort level of pediatricians, family medicine physicians, nurse practitioners on these conditions, to enhance the partnership and co-management of pediatric conditions between primary care and ETSU pediatric specialists, and to provide materials that can be used for patient education and promote patient/family self-management.

We believe the tele-mentoring model will be a particularly effective learning experience for primary care providers and provide easy access to important diagnostic and management information from specialists.  Your feedback is important to ensure we understand the needs of the primary care physician in order to create a learning experience that adds value to you, your practice and your patients.
