ECHO of the nurse

The ECHO movement establishes ongoing learning communities through which primary care professionals can receive support and build the skills they require. The programs offer to achieve a knowledge transfer from tertiary care nursing experts to primary care nurses. We believe that a competent nurse as a care giver can lead to improved quality care of the patients.

To strengthen the nursing fraternity of India, ECHO India pledges to support its partners to train and upskill the nurses of the different healthcare settings across the country. We aim to create a scenario where all patients are well attended and given adequate care by well-trained nurses.

With the launch of the ECHO India Nursing Vertical in 2020, we hope to address this issue. The need for specialty care in India is substantial and growing and this is truer at this time of unprecedented health criticality. The ECHO India Nursing vertical aims to upskill and strengthen the capacity of the nursing fraternity by effectively integrating the ECHO model with the country's relevant government and collaborators.

A quick snapshot of Project ECHO®

ECHO India is a not-for-profit organization working towards building capacities across healthcare, education and other sustainable development goals. With the intention of delivering treatment to as many patients as possible, in the most remote and underserved places, Dr. Sanjeev Arora, MD, a liver disease specialist at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center in Albuquerque, created a case-based digital learning model to mentor and upskill capacities of local healthcare providers to better manage patient care.
