Centurion Correctional Health ECHO

About Centurion Correctional Health ECHO

The Centurion Correctional Health ECHO is geared for healthcare providers working within Departments of Corrections that contract with Centurion Health. This program will provide education and training on evidence-based best practices to implement into patient care.

During each session, participants will spend the first thirty minutes on a didactic presentation that explores clinical challenges and complex cases that occur within DOC. The last half hour is dedicated to a patient case where an ECHO participant presents de-identified information on a patient they are currently caring for. Participants engage in meaningful discussion to provide feedback and timely recommendations to the case presenter.

The curriculum will cover common and complex medical and behavioral health conditions that affect people who are incarcerated.

This ECHO meets virtually on the second and fourth Thursday of the month from 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. ET via Zoom.
