Project ECHO Movement Disorders Network

The Project ECHO Movement Disorders Network has been established to build specialist knowledge in supporting patients with movement disorders, and build the capability of people living with complex movement disorders to better manage their condition. The Network is part of a series of Project ECHO programs delivered by Western Victoria PHN (WVPHN).

The ECHO Movement Disorders Network is part of a pilot project to give specialised care for people living with movement disorders. It is delivered in partnership with South West Healthcare, Wimmera Health Care Group, Rural Northwest Health and Grampians Community Health.

The ECHO sessions aim to build the knowledge, skills and confidence of health professionals working in the field, with a focus on support for the Movement Disorder Nurses stepping into new roles.

ECHO participants will:

  • Learn about developing a Movement Disorder model of care
  • Undertake a comprehensive assessment for your patients / Identify appropriate evidence-based screening and assessment tools
  • Working with a multi-disciplinary team – maximise the team’s input
  • Improved understanding of interdisciplinary care

Sessions are held monthly.

About ECHO sessions

Online ECHO sessions offer a blend of didactic and case-based learning. All sessions are free and delivered via Zoom.

Case-based discussions are vital to the ECHO principle of ‘all teach all learn’. During each session, a primary care participant presents a ‘real world de-identified case’ for discussion. Highly rated by previous ECHO members, this element of the session provides participants with opportunity to consider treatment and management options relevant to rural and regional settings.

Completion of case templates (to be provided upon registration) are a pre-requisite for participation in the ECHO network. However, not everyone will be presenting at the sessions.
