Project ECHO: Epilepsy Across the Lifespan is a virtual case-based learning program which endeavors to educate healthcare practitioners caring for patients with epilepsy to enhance their care. The program is funded by the Ministry of Health of Ontario and provides CME credits at no cost. Sessions are 60 minutes and offered weekly over the lunch hour for ease of participation. Sessions begin with a quick 10-minute didactic talk delivering relevant clinical pearls followed by an interactive discussion of a de-identified real patient case brought forward by community healthcare providers. Our interdisciplinary teams located at academic hospitals connect with community practitioners via Zoom to deliver these sessions. There are three programs: Epilepsy in Children and Youth, Epilepsy and Adults and Epilepsy and Genetics. Those Family Practitioners, Paediatricians, and Community Neurologists who complete the Epilepsy and Genetics program will be able to order genetic testing for their eligible epilepsy patients through the Ontario Epilepsy Genetics Testing Program. There is rolling registration so no deadline to register by and the same sessions are offered on multiple days of the week and begin at various months throughout the year.
