Project ECHO: Type 1 Diabetes Care and Management

Each ECHO will have a live, interactive seminar and on-demand component; please note that participation in the live event is limited to 25 persons per event and that those who participate in the live ECHO may receive credit from the live event but are not eligible to receive credit for the on-demand webinar. 

We are pleased to participate in Project ECHO: Type 1 Diabetes Care and Management.

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.

DISCLAIMERS

USE OF PROFESSIONAL JUDGMENT:
The educational content in this activity relates to basic principles of diagnosis and therapy and does not substitute for individual patient assessment based on the health care provider’s examination of the patient and consideration of laboratory data and other factors unique to the patient. Standards in medicine change as new data become available.

DRUGS AND DOSAGES:

When prescribing medications, the physician is advised to check the product information sheet accompanying each drug to verify conditions of use and to identify any changes in drug dosage schedule or contraindications.

POLICY ON UNLABELED/OFF-LABEL USE:

The Endocrine Society has determined that disclosure of unlabeled/off-label or investigational use of commercial product(s) is informative for audiences and therefore requires this information to be disclosed to the learners at the beginning of the presentation. Uses of specific therapeutic agents, devices, and other products discussed in this educational activity may not be the same as those indicated in product labeling approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The Endocrine Society requires that any discussions of such “off-label” use be based on scientific research that conforms to generally accepted standards of experimental design, data collection, and data analysis. Before recommending or prescribing any therapeutic agent or device, learners should review the complete prescribing information, including indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, and adverse events.

PRIVACY AND CONFIDENTIALITY STATEMENT:

The Endocrine Society will record learner’s personal information as provided on CME evaluations to allow for issuance and tracking of CME certificates.
