Learn Intestinal Failure Tele-ECHO (LIFT–ECHO)
Share |


     
       
       

Intestinal failure (IF) is a rare, chronic, debilitating disease whose management often involves parenteral nutrition (PN)—a life-saving therapy that can be associated with life-threatening complications. Access to specialized intestinal care and expert PN management may be challenging for patients who do not live close to intestinal rehabilitation programs. Novel approaches to provide specialized care for IF are necessary. The Expanding Community Healthcare Outcomes (ECHO®) model may be an innovative way to expand and support such expertise.

Consumers/patients learn how you can get involved and have your clinician participate in the Learn Intestinal Failure Tele-ECHO (LIFT–ECHO) Clinic and even get direct feedback on your case from a team of experts.

 

Clinicians participating in Learn Intestinal Failure Tele-ECHO (LIFT–ECHO) will receive expert consultation and continuing education that may benefit the clinicians themselves, but it will also benefit individual patient care. The establishment of a LIFT-ECHO network, based on the ECHO® model of care to share “right knowledge at the right place and right time,” is expected to improve management of complex IF in the United States.


LIFT-ECHO is a collaboration among experts in nutrition, gastroenterology, surgery/transplant, patient advocacy, and insurers as well as the ECHO Institute (University of New Mexico, Albuquerque); with the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (ASPEN) as a continuing medical education (CME) provider.
