BC ECHO for Post-COVID-19 Recovery

This free virtual learning community ran from July 2021-July 2022 to give health-care providers the help and support needed to care for patients experiencing symptoms after COVID-19 infection.

Based on the global ECHO model, the BC ECHO for Post-COVID-19 Recovery was a virtual learning community of specialists and community health-care providers who used instructive and case-based learning to improve care for patients recovering from symptoms post-COVID-19.

Each of the twelve live sessions was one hour long, and started with a 20-minute presentation from specialists on participant-identified topics. The presentation was followed by a case presentation submitted by a participant. Each session wrapped up with resources and recommendations.

Recordings from all sessions are available below.

About the BC ECHO

  • Our ECHO was fully funded by the Shared Care Committee, one of the Joint Collaborative Committees of Doctors of BC and the BC Government.
  • CME credits: Live attendance at each session offered 1 Mainpro+ credit or 1 MOC (Section 1) Group Learning credit.
  • Attendees connected with a growing community of primary and allied health care providers (including physicians, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, social work and more) across the province to build a community of practice where everyone learns together with a shared purpose.
  • Our ECHO provided a significant opportunity for practitioners to improve their competence and capacity for post-COVID-19 care, by gaining help with complex cases, receiving support and mentorship, and helping to reduce disparities in the quality of care for rural and underserved areas.
  • Our ECHO curriculum was informed by patient partner perspectives of their lived experience with COVID-19. The curriculum was designed to help family practitioners support their patients who are struggling in their COVID-19 recovery.
