LTSS ECHO COVID SERIES

Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes

Dear LTSS ECHO COVID Preparation Series Attendees:

In response to the need for COVID training for Hawaii’s senior care facilities, we launched the ECHO LTSS COVID Series (April- Sept 2020) to help facilities prepare for the pandemic.  We have been happy to see how well many of Hawaii’s facilities were able to respond to COVID cases and quickly block its spread.  However, it has been challenging to implement many of the new federal mandates and guidelines.  We are transforming this series and taking a new approach to support facilities as they implement and streamline their processes. Please join us for our Nursing Home ECHO Learning Action Network that will be taking place on the second Thursday of each month from 2-3pm. You may register here.
