This is the second webinar in the rural veterans behavioral health webinar series hosted by the University of Missouri’s Show-Me ECHO program. The series will address topics that are pertinent to understanding and treating behavioral health problems among Missouri’s veterans, including military culture, common mental health problems and resources available to veterans. Webinars will be offered Thursdays from noon to 1 p.m. Follow https://showmeecho.org/ for future webinar schedules.
The webinar series precedes the launch of a new ECHO program for Rural Veterans Behavioral Health. ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) uses videoconferencing to connect an interdisciplinary team of experts with primary care providers. They collaborate in case-based learning sessions to help primary care providers develop advanced skills and best practices, which in turn increases the availability and quality of patient care.
Registration for all Show-Me ECHOs – including opioid use disorder, chronic pain management, dermatology, Hepatitis C, child psychology, asthma, autism, healthcare ethics and community health workers – is available at showmeecho.org. The state-funded programs are provided at no cost to participants, including no cost continuing education credits for health care professionals.
University of Missouri Show-Me ECHO is designated as an international SuperHub, meaning the founding ECHO program at the University of New Mexico has certified MU to train other organizations wanting to adopt the ECHO model. Show-Me ECHO immersion trainings and orientations have been provided to health professionals from California, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Iowa, Nebraska, Tennessee and West Virginia, as well as Kenya, Thailand and Vietnam.
