Project ECHO – Movement Disorders Network

Western Victoria PHN (WVPHN) and Fight Parkinson’s received federal government funding for a pilot project that aims to give specialised care for people living with movement disorders in partnership with South West Healthcare, Wimmera Health Care Group, Rural Northwest Health and Grampians Community Health.

These ECHO sessions are aimed at building the knowledge, skills and confidence of health professionals working in the field, with a focus on support for the Movement Disorder Nurses stepping into their new roles.

The Project ECHO Movement Disorders Network aims 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.

In order to support the growth of the ECHO movement, Project ECHO collects participation data for each ECHO program. This data allows Project ECHO to measure, analyse, and report on the movement’s reach. It is used in reports, on maps and visualisations, for research, for communications and surveys, for data quality assurance activities, and for decision-making related to new initiatives.
