The AOD Collaborative ECHO is a partnership involving VAADA, Turning Point, and GVHealth. This ECHO program aims to enhance the capabilities of AOD workers in addressing substance use issues among their clients. The primary objective of these sessions is to foster a community of AOD workers with varying levels of expertise, united by the shared goal of improving the well-being and achieving positive outcomes for individuals with problematic substance use. Conducted under the guidance of Turning Point, each session commences with a presentation delivered by a Turning Point expert or a related professional, focusing on a specific topic. This is followed by an in-depth case consultation, during which attendees have the opportunity to ask questions or offer recommendations based on a case study presented by one of the participants.

What is an ECHO?
Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is an innovative model of inter-professional education and case-based learning, which aims to democratise clinical knowledge and deliver best-practice care to people in communities that lack ready access to specialists.
Inspired by the way clinicians learn from medical rounds during residencies, the ECHO Model® has evolved into a learning framework that applies across disciplines for sustainable and profound change.
