Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The New England Prevention Workforce Needs Assessment conducted by PCG for the New England PTTC highlighted several gaps for the prevention workforce development throughout New England. One area of need is additional support for those in managerial or supervisory roles in the prevention field. Through this New England PTTC Project ECHO, we will seek to provide support and education for supervisors and emerging leaders in the prevention field on topics related to positive workplace culture including staff development, retention and prevention of burnout, coaching, and more. The goals of this ECHO are to provide support for leaders and emerging leaders in the New England Prevention Workforce and speed the dissemination of best practices to support workforce development in their communities.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the ECHO, participants will be able to:
• Describe best practices for developing prevention skills and workforce capacity
• Differentiate between leadership and management skills and practices
• Discuss strategies to overcome common workforce issues
What is Project ECHO®: Project ECHO (Extension for Community Health Outcomes) is an evidence-based distance learning method developed by researchers at the University of New Mexico, in which a group of faculty experts meets regularly with a participant cohort to engage in case-based discussion and learning. Using this format, this group will meet for 1 hour via Zoom videoconference monthly for 9 months consecutively. Each session will include a brief expert-led educational segment and an extended participant-led case discussion. The Project ECHO is an all-learn, all-teach model in which both the experts and participants engage in knowledge sharing throughout the program.
