The Indiana Nursing Home COVID-19 Action Network (NNHCAN) ECHO ran from November 2020 - August 2021 in two phases. The program served 211 long-term care facilities throughout Indiana.
Phase I of the program included 16 weekly sessions designed specifically to assist with the most pressing COVID-related needs. Phase II consisted of weekly sessions comprised of three cohorts aimed at stopping the spread, vaccinations, supporting needs of residents and families, and leadership behaviors to support nursing home teams.
This ECHO program was geared specifically for nursing home leadership to build capacity related to COVID-19 and protect residents and staff.
Nursing facilities that joined the interactive community of practice worked to advance improvements in COVID-19 preparedness, safety, and infection control.
