ECHO® Geriatric Mental Health in Long Term Care (GEMH)
Email: David Jacobowitz, Project Coordinator
Phone: (585) 276-8298
The goal of ECHO GEMH is to increase skills, knowledge, and self-efficacy of long-term care clinicians in their management of older adults with behavioral health and dementia care needs.
Structure and Schedule
Community-based clinicians present difficult cases in a structured format. The URMC hub team then guides group discussion and provides recommendations. Short didactic presentations by the URMC hub team provide additional content knowledge.
