Using the Project ECHO Model to Effectively Provide Diabetes Education and Relevant Resources to CHWs Serving the Underserved Agricultural Worker Population
The Project Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes (Project ECHO) represents an effective training model for health care providers and CHWs. Developed at the University of New Mexico in 2003 as a platform to improve access to evidence-based care for underserved populations facing complex health problems, it has been utilized globally in at least 38 countries (Project ECHO, 2020). Project ECHO relies on best practices to reduce disparities, including adhering to evidence-based practice and guidelines.

To that extent, Migrant Clinicians Network utilized the Project ECHO framework to train CHWs in best practices in diabetes prevention in management. Over a series of six 90-minute session, 32 CHWs and other peer educators participated in sessions on diabetes focusing on what is diabetes, complications from the disease, including how the various systems of the body are affected, nutrition and diabetes, diabetes treatments that include medications and improved lifestyle, gestational diabetes, and mental health and diabetes.

This webinar will review the components of MCN’s Project ECHO series with CHWs on Diabetes. It will provide an overview of the content of the training, the use of a culturally and linguistically appropriate patient education comic book utilized both in the series and by the CHWs for patient education and discuss the value of CHW trainings in Spanish.
