NDCPD Project Echo

Minot State University Project ECHO

The purpose of Project ECHO is to move knowledge, not people. NDCPD works to create a multidisciplinary Hub Team of subject matter experts to develop curricula on various issues impacting people with disabilities. Project ECHO aims to provide cost-effective professional development that increases participant capacity in underserved areas by equipping them with evidence-based practices and providing access to specialty consultation, resulting in reduced variations in care.

Each ECHO follows these guiding principles:

  • Hub teams include those with lived experience and subject matter experts to ensure project objectives provide an in-depth exploration of relevant topics.
  • Presentations consist of current best practices, with key strategies that can be implemented immediately.
  • Case presentations offer an opportunity to brainstorm evidence-based solutions, share successes, and receive specialty consultation from Subject Matter Experts.
  • Sessions will engage participants in case discussions and provide an opportunity for participants to network with one another, resulting in a community of practice over time.
