New Telementoring Program for School Nurses

School Nurse ECHO Program
Monday, January 7, 2019

The American Academy of Pediatrics’ National Coordinating Center for Epilepsy and the Epilepsy Foundation are hosting a tri-weekly (every three weeks), eight-session learning collaborative, Managing Students with Seizures ECHO: The Importance of School Nurses. Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a telementoring program designed to create communities of learners. It brings together health care providers and subject matter experts using didactic and case-based presentations, fostering an “All TEACH, ALL LEARN” approach.

Participating school nurses can expect to:

  • Increase knowledge and self-efficacy around managing students with seizures.
  • Increase communication between school nurses, other school personnel, and parents to improve care coordination of students with seizures.
  • Learn best practices to create a safe and supportive school environment for students with seizures.
  • Gain access to resources to support the care of students with seizures.

School nurses are eligible to participate and encouraged to invite other school personnel to join as applicable. Continuing education credits for nurses are available at no cost. As part of the registration process, participants will be asked to provide additional information about their school.
