Start an ECHO

Immersion

Once your organisation is ready, we offer 3 x half day Virtual Immersion training sessions where we offer a deeper dive into the ECHO model and next steps for implementation.

Through Immersion, you will develop an ongoing relationship with our Replication Team and other ECHO staff members, who will assist you in understanding the ECHO model in-depth and prepare you to launch your own ECHO network.

Readiness

To help us determine your readiness, please complete and return the Partner Replication form to ECHO.CHQ@health.qld.gov.au

Once received, a member of the Project ECHO team will be in contact regarding the next steps and registration details for Immersion Training.

Who should attend Immersion Training?

  • We ask that a minimum of three people from your implementation team attend the same 3 half day training course in full;
  • We suggest that your ECHO Implementation Team comprise of the Program Lead, a content expert who could also fill the role of the facilitator, and Network Coordinator.

Replication

Replication is the implementation and adoption of the ECHO model, based on community needs and resources, with training and technical assistance from the ECHO Institute and other superhubs.

The actual replication of the ECHO model is completed by organisations who have signed partnership contracts with the ECHO Institute and have completed Immersion Training.

We call these organisations ECHO ‘partners’ or ‘replication partners’.
