The Australia and New Zealand Bone Health TeleECHO program

Project Details







Clinical Themes


The Australia and New Zealand Bone Health TeleECHO program was founded in 2021 by clinicians who identified a need for a tele-mentoring, networking, and case-discussion platform for osteoporosis and metabolic bone diseases. This brings together consultants and trainees with an interest in Osteoporosis and metabolic bone disease from Endocrinology, Rheumatology, Aged Care, General Medicine, Rehabilitation, Sports Medicine and Rural/Remote Medicine. 
 TeleECHO is a platform to discuss complex osteoporosis and bone health cases with a multidisciplinary panel of clinicians with specialist expertise in osteoporosis and metabolic bone diseases. The key goal of project ECHO is to promote collaborative learning in which experts share their knowledge and provide telementoring to participants through case-based discussions. Participation in Bone Health TeleECHO enables attending clinicians to:
* Build on self-efficacy and expertise in osteoporosis and other bone diseases 
* Meet continuing professional development (CPD) requirements 
* Network with colleagues with an interest in bone disease across different specialties 
* Discuss complex cases with experts in the field regardless of health sector (public vs. private), geographical location (urban vs. rural/remote) or specialty.
