About this series

Children and young people from refugee or displaced backgrounds may display a range of behaviours that are symptomatic of traumatic experiences. These behaviours will vary according to age, developmental stage and the refugee experience. Project ECHO® uses a guided-practice model to link specialists in refugee health and wellbeing with front-line educators. ECHO® will provide a forum for educators to access professional guidance and support to respond to the complex needs of refugee families impacted by significant trauma.

All sessions occur via Zoom, an interactive, on-line platform – the only requirements for participation are an internet connection and a device with webcam.*

*Participants from the Department of Education need to contact their IT support to gain access to the Zoom software and seek approval from the Deputy/Principal.

What our GPs have to say

“Participating in ECHO® is like having a friendly weekly check-in with an expert panel to round out your complex consultations. The value to my patients in providing a well-rounded opinion to them after presenting their child’s complex presentation to the ECHO® panel is amazing. It has opened up my mind to the possibilities of multidisciplinary case conferences where I previously thought them an impossible dream for general practice.”

“It has been wonderful to get actual multidisciplinary teaching on this very common condition! One of the things that has really struck me is the amount allied health can really contribute to the management of ADHD. This includes not just dietitians, OTs and psychologists but also social workers and school guidance counsellors. Not only have I learnt a lot about ADHD, I have also learnt so much about holistic patient care.”
