Mayo Clinic Project ECHO™ (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) seeks to be a force multiplier to share academic clinical knowledge with health care providers who practice in rural and underserved areas and want to increase their knowledge of how to identify and treat liver disease. During regularly scheduled ECHO sessions, via Zoom, participants will learn to assess and risk-stratify patients to identify liver disease. Interactive didactics will be presented in the context of “All Teach. All Learn.” CME credit will be awarded to participants, at no cost. Through this model, local providers are trained by academic specialists, higher quality healthcare is delivered locally, disease progression is arrested, steps are made toward health equity to marginalized demographics, and population health outcomes are improved.
Mayo Clinic Project ECHO aims to effectively improve the capacity of clinicians treating liver disease throughout Mayo Clinic Health System to improve patient outcomes. The project is a collaborative model of medical education and care management that helps providers deliver care to patients with chronic liver disease. The project strives to narrow gaps in healthcare disparities for unrepresented minority populations and reduce the burden on the patients by allowing improved access to specialty care.
Why is ECHO Important?
Prevalence of Liver Disease
Liver disease is a significant health concern that is often silent. It is estimated that 35% of the US population suffers from silent liver disease. Liver disease encompasses a range of conditions that affect the liver’s function and structure, including steatotic liver disease (previously known as fatty liver), alcoholic liver disease, viral hepatitis, cirrhosis, liver cancer, and more. If liver disease is diagnosed and addressed early, the consequences can be mitigated, and patient outcomes are much improved.
This course is designed for healthcare providers in the field of family medicine, primary care, internal medicine, gastroenterology and hepatology.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Apply the principles of risk stratification for chronic liver disease in their daily clinical practice.
- Formulate care plans specific to steatotic liver disease.
- Differentiate between at-risk and not at-risk liver disease.
Attendance at any Mayo Clinic course does not indicate or guarantee competence or proficiency in the skills, knowledge or performance of any care or procedure(s) which may be discussed or taught in this course.
