About EDS ECHO Pediatrics North America

The EDS ECHO Pediatrics North America program is a virtual program for healthcare professionals worldwide, across all disciplines who want to improve their ability to care for children and younger people with EDS, HSD, and associated symptoms and conditions.

The program consists of expert presentations and case-based interactive sessions delivered virtually via the Zoom platform. 

The program is composed of nine sessions, each consisting of expert presentations and case-based interactive sessions delivered virtually via the Zoom platform. Each session is 1hr in length and is led by Dr. Sarah Schwartz and Constance O’Connor from Toronto, Canada.

What is Case-Based Learning?

The ECHO model uses case-based learning. Participants can either ask specific questions or they can present de-identified cases from their own practice where there is a concern about any aspect of the diagnosis or management of EDS and HSD or their complications. The session group, with expert specialist support discuss the cases and provide guidance. All are encouraged to participate if they feel able.

Can I Earn CME Credits?

CME/CEU/CE credits are available to healthcare professionals. Credits are awarded at 1 per 60 minutes of live session activity. An Ehlers-Danlos Society ‘Certificate of Attendance’ can also be provided upon request.

What if I Can’t Attend a Session?

In order to obtain the most benefit from the program, participants are encouraged to attend as many live sessions as possible. You will be able to catch up on the sessions you miss by watching the password protected session content which will be made available to participants through the Ehlers-Danlos Society’s resources page after each session.
