What is Managing Students with Seizures ECHO?

The Managing Students with Seizures ECHO is an interactive forum for school nurses 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.


This program uses the ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) model, a telementoring platform designed to create communities of learners by bringing together health care providers and experts in topical areas using didactic and case-based presentations, fostering an "ALL TEACH, ALL LEARN" approach.

  • Using basic, widely available video conferencing technology, clinical management tools, and case-based learning, health care providers develop knowledge and self-efficacy on conditions and/or processes.
  • Participants will meet regularly for 10 sessions.
  • All attendees are strongly encouraged to actively participate during each virtual ECHO sessions.
  • Technical assistance will be provided prior and throughout the launch of the program
