  • 14 Nov 2022

CTC-RI hosted our 2nd Asthma Essentials ECHO this month. This ECHO aims to bring together partners from multiple learning and care communities. CTC-RI was thrilled to welcome providers, pharmacists, respiratory therapists, nurse case managers, community health workers, and school nurses to engage in the ECHO “all teach, all learn” model through didactic and case presentations. The end goal is to enhance collaboration and support while building skills, competencies and best practices in asthma care. 

This session brought together 51 participants and was facilitated by Pat Flanagan, MD. The didactic session, presented by Lillian Nieves, PharmD at Providence Community Health Centers, focused on updated use of asthma medications and action plans and was followed by a case presentation from Sarah Fessler, MD, East Bay Community Action Program.  

Session 3 will occur on December 14, 7:30am. The didactic portion will be presented by Jim Ginda, MA, RRT, AE-C, FAARC and will focus on assessing and managing enviornmental triggers. Marie Habershaw, School Nurse/ Healthcare Coordinator, Diocese of Providence will provide the case presentation.
