The Long COVID and Fatiguing Illness Recovery Program (LC&FIRP) quarterly courses are CDC-funded asynchronous learning sessions being offered by Family Health Centers of San Diego, the ECHO Institute, the University of Washington, the University of New Mexico and the University of Colorado. Quarterly Course 4, which is now open, is a 45-minute, self-paced course intended to rapidly disseminate Post-COVID Conditions (PCC) and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) findings and emerging best practices.

Quarterly Course 4 consists of four modules, each featuring an interactive activity following the course content. These activities were created in Articulate Storyline, which is software used for creating interactive online learning experiences. The activities ask learners to engage with the content of the module in an interactive format. For example, Module 1 has a click-and-drag activity that asks participants to identify whether displayed symptoms are examples of brain fog or cognitive red flags.

“This format offers a low stakes way for learners to engage with a lot of course content at once without it feeling like a test,” said Garrett Ruzicka, ECHO Colorado Instructional Designer.

NEWCOMER HEALTH ECHO SERIES BUILDS MEDICAL KNOWLEDGE AND CULTURAL COMPETENCE

The Newcomer Health ECHO series is designed to increase medical providers’ knowledge of the resettlement and health issues of newcomers, including refugee, immigrant and migrant (RIM) populations. The series reviews resettlement pathways, evidence-based screening recommendations, and more common diagnoses and treatment approaches for pediatric and adult populations.

This ECHO series arose from a Center of Excellence on Newcomer Health working group that is funded by the CDC. Today there are more than 500 registrants and more than 150 have attended each monthly session. Participants are joining from across the country.

“With the influx of Afghan arrivals starting last October, we wanted to increase knowledge of newcomer and refugee care to primary care providers who may not have experience caring for this population. We designed the ECHO to reach this audience since many may be seeing newcomers for the first time,” said Jessica Deffler, Family Medicine Physician and Medical Director of the Wyss Wellness Center in Philadelphia. “We hope that this allows providers to feel more comfortable taking care of new arrivals by building medical knowledge as well as cultural competence.”

Speakers from the community are invited to share insight into the culture, health beliefs and attitudes toward health care of RIM communities. “This has been helpful for providers to develop sensitive approaches to counseling and to know where there may be opportunities for education,” said Deffler.

The next Newcomer Health session – Ukrainian Health Considerations – will be held January 31. Click here to register.
