The CGWEP is a HUB partner with Project ECHO® from the University of New Mexco, providing telementoring via Zoom where groups of healthcare professionals gather to problem solve using an “all-teach, all-learn” format. This is not a webinar. The point is to share tough cases and systems improvements. A short, 15-minute didactic kicks off the telementoring session, followed by questions and answers, with the bulk of time spent on case discussions. This is a forum to develop community with other providers and solve problems together!
The North Carolina COVID Action Network ( NC CAN) for NC Skilled Nursing Facilities is full. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to join a cohort with another UNC department
This is an opportunity for your nursing home to join a weekly Zoom conference and connect with infectious disease experts and geriatricians at UNC to fight COVID-19. Your team gets access to world class experts plus a $6,000 stipend from the federal CARES act once you complete the 16-week training.
This is not a webinar! Project ECHO provides collaborative problem solving and mentoring via a free weekly Zoom session. It is sponsored by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement along with Project ECHO from the University of New Mexico.
Space is limited to 33 nursing homes with only 2 registrants per facility. To qualify for the $6,000 stipend both registrants need to attend 13 of the 16 ECHO zoom sessions which are on Fridays starting 11/13/2020 from 11am to 12 pm.

Project ECHO® for Nursing Homes During COVID-19
As long term care facilities have been facing the brunt of COVID-19, the CGWEP along with AHEC partners are forming ECHOs across the state for nursing homes with these goals:
- Prevent COVID-19 from entering the nursing home.
- If COVID has breached the facility, stop the spread!
- Treat COVID patients in the nursing home; avoiding transfers to hospital whenever possible.
- Help reintegrate visitors safely to address social isolation, loneliness and depression.
Nursing homes will receive a $6,000 stipend for attending a 16-week ECHO and will be eligible to apply for additional federal CARES funds available for nursing homes who perform well in controlling COVID-19.
Evidence-based, standardized content is being provided by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement.
Weekly Schedule each Thursday and Friday from 11-12:30 Topics Include:
Nov 12th and 13th Preventing the spread in nursing homes
Nov 19th and 20th PPE
