Project ECHO Recording & Material Archives

Each Pediatric Mental Health Project ECHO Clinic starts with a didactic, followed by case presentations. The didactic portion of each clinic is recorded and uploaded to the Billings Clinic Project ECHO VIMEO Channel. Recording the didactics allows those that were not able to attend or those that wish to review the topics access to the presentations. Recordings do not include case presentations to ensure patients’ protected health information and privacy is protected. In addition to the recorded videos, you will also find the PDF for each didactic presentation.
