Open to all clinicians, this program seeks to educate primary care providers, care teams, and non-diabetes specialists in best practices for type 1 diabetes care and management. With many therapeutic and pharmacological options available, clinicians need additional resources to stay up-to-date. This program, featuring live, interactive seminars and on-demand webinars, will focus on evidence-based methods for addressing type 1 diabetes with a goal of improving health-related quality-of-life for patients and empowering clinicians to provide the best possible care. The aim is to address type 1 diabetes by educating clinicians around the world in best-practices and research directly from diabetes-management specialists. There will be a total of 7 ECHOs, each focusing on a different approach to managing type 1 diabetes. 

Project ECHO started at the University of New Mexico in 2003. ECHO stands for Extension of Community Healthcare Outcomes, and it is built on the idea that while not everyone can be a specialist, all patients deserve access to specialty care. Using a hub and spoke model, and virtual platforms like Zoom, specialists are able to connect with non-specialist providers in real time to provide education and feedback on cases. Our ECHOs, which will focus on the management of type 1 diabetes, will be held on a monthly basis as live and on-demand webinars. 

This educational activity is supported by independent medical educational grants from Abbott Diabetes Care, Inc., Dexcom, Inc., Helmsley Charitable Trust, Insulet Corporation, Lilly USA LLC, Medtronic Diabetes, Novo Nordisk Inc., and Tandem Diabetes Care.
This program will be of substantial interest to endocrinologists and fellows caring for individuals with, or at risk for developing, type 1 diabetes and associated diseases. Additionally, this program may be of interest to primary care professionals, care teams, and advance practice professionals who treat patients with type 1 diabetes.

Upon completing this series, learners will be able to:

  • Identify new and emerging trends in type 1 diabetes management, including emerging therapeutic options;
  • Develop individualized treatment strategies, that include a variety of approaches, to manage individuals with T1D and associated comorbidities; 
  • Incorporate diabetes technologies, including insulin pump therapy and continuous glucose monitoring, into treatment strategies for appropriate individuals with T1D.
