ECHO MOLST + eMOLST was developed to meet the ever-increasing demand for professional training and technical assistance for practice transformation focused on advance care planning, MOLST and eMOLST. Project ECHO’s innovative approach will support the current and future needs of our clinicians and system leaders.
The aims of ECHO MOLST + eMOLST are to provide sustainable MOLST education and to improve the quality of thoughtful MOLST discussions and documentation to ensure patient preferences are honored at end-of-life, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Excellus BlueCross BlueShield is a partner with Project ECHO.
ECHO MOLST + eMOLST is a 9-week clinic series. Weekly lunch hour-video conferencing clinics begin with brief introductions and a 15-minute didactic presentation that has been updated in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is followed by a 35 to 40-minute real patient case presentation given by a “spoke” using a Q&A and discussion format.
