About the workshop

The ACAR Clinic’s ECHO-Autism telementoring programme – the first of its kind in Quebec – aims to standardize best practices and increase knowledge about autism and related conditions among healthcare providers.

Using a hub-and-spoke knowledge-sharing approach, a panel of expert specialists (a.k.a. the 'Hub Team') lead virtual clinics catered to health professionals and trainees in local communities.

Each session includes a short didactic lecture on a specific topic, followed by a case study by an attendee and a group discussion.


About the ECHOTM model

The Extension of Community Healthcare Outcomes (ECHO) modelTM consists of a platform for both delivery of services and outcomes research, with the purpose of reducing health disparities by erasing barriers between specialty and primary care, particularly in underserved and remote areas.

The ACAR Clinic’s workshops are approved for accreditation by the Office for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) of the McGill University Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences.

Accreditation ensures participants that the activities in which they take part in meet McGill University's high educational standards.

Further details regarding approved accreditors and number of hours will be made available at registration.
