'Growing Older with Lifelong Intellectual Disabilities: When Dementia is Suspected or Diagnosed'
The Fall 2022 Project ECHO series, recently completed, was a free, practical, case-based education program for health care and social service providers who want to enhance their knowledge, competence, and performance related to the care of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities affected by dementia. Each ECHO session included a brief presentation by a content expert, case study presentation (submitted by a participant), and an open discussion to teach and learn from one another.
This series is a collaboration between the NTG and the Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Programs (GWEPs) at the University of Rhode Island and Virginia Commonwealth University and is supported by grants from HRSA to the two universities.
Stay tuned for our Spring 2023 Project ECHO series!
