The goal was to improve access to diagnosis and care for children with autism when the series started in February 2019. Today, after 11 cohorts, more than 200 primary care providers – 2018 to be exact – have participated in Autism: Core Concepts for Primary Care. The series also aims to build a support/mentoring network for primary care providers in rural, frontier and urban communities to foster improved care for children with ASD and developmental disabilities. Through participation, physicians are empowered and supported in the identification and treatment of DD/ASD, supporting families in their home communities.
Autism: Core Concepts for Primary Care is offered in two, five-week series focused on diagnosis, resources/treatment, management of ADHD, anxiety, irritability, sleep and toileting concerns. Sessions are led by an interdisciplinary group of providers including physicians, psychologists, a social worker, genetic counselor and pharmacists.
“For many of us, this ECHO is the highlight of our week,” said Ann Reynolds, MD, medical director of developmental pediatrics and professor of pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. “We enjoy mentoring primary care providers who are eager to gain the skills and confidence to help their patients and their families.”
In addition to the Autism ECHO learning series, this group of providers offers a monthly “case conference” – an opportunity for primary care providers and clinical psychologists to share current patient cases, receive feedback from the interdisciplinary team and to support one another in the diagnosis and management of patients with DD/ASD.
The next cohort of Autism: Core Concepts for Primary Care begins January 5, 2022.
