Growing older with intellectual and developmental disabilities: implementing and evaluating a project ECHO for dementia education
The article describes the effectiveness of a series of 10 ECHO sessions over 12 months which provided content on ID and AD/ADRD for 145 providers in over 20 agencies and discusses the series impact which was assessed by a follow-up survey sent to participants after each program. The study shows how Project ECHO can bridge gaps and span boundaries between the ID and aging care systems at multiple levels, improving interprofessional collaboration and care by addressing both knowledge and networking needs of providers.
