USA CON Nurse Education, Practice, Quality and Retention Mobile Health Training (REEACH) ECHO®
Attention Healthcare Providers – If your patients benefit from comprehensive integrated healthcare, from local people they know and trust, then the USA CON REEACH ECHO® program can provide you with interprofessional telementoring.
No cost to participate | Free continuing education credits available to eligible participants.
In response to national health professional shortages, Colleges of Nursing, Medicine, and Allied Health around the country have increased enrollment. Often, nursing students emerge from nursing education programs inadequately prepared to understand the consequences of social determinants of health (SDOH) and the importance of providing safe and equitable care across diverse populations. Concurrently, the COVID-19 pandemic has decreased the volume of clinical training opportunities due to initial safety concerns and ongoing staff shortages. The REEACH nurse training program addresses the need for an enhanced didactic curriculum related to SDOH and health equity concepts for current students and through the USA CON REEACH ECHO® program outreaches to the community nurse and healthcare worker.
