    Hello Learning Partners!

    The start of Cycle 2 of ECHO Care of the Elderly (COE) is fast approaching! We here at ECHO COE thought this would be a great opportunity for everyone to get familiar with the Discussion Board feature. After each ECHO Session a new discussion board will be available for any outstanding questions or comments regarding that week’s topic.

    Since we will be getting to know each other in the coming weeks, we thought it would be nice to use the first discussion page as an introduction. We encourage everyone to post something interesting about themselves, and what they look forward to gaining from the ECHO Care of the Elderly program.

    Here is our team enjoying the first session of our ECHO Pilot!


    The ECHO COE Team

    Ewa Ceccon

    I an NP working in primary care at the FHT in Sudbury. I see a range of patients throughout the day, pediatric to geriatric.
    I am interested in learning how to assess and manage this particular demographic. Currently within our FHT, a we have a few NP’s who specialize in care of the elderly, and I aspire to increase my knowledge base like them. I look forward to learning everything from assessment, evidence based review and learning from experiences of the group.
    I look forward to ‘meeting’ everyone and share our learning in the upcoming weeks.


    Hi Ewa and welcome!

    Crystal Gingras

    I was very pleased with the first Echo session held yesterday, great job everyone!
    I am Crystal Gingras, a Psychogeriatric Resource Consultant working for NOSH from both of their location, Terrace Bay and Marathon. My main focus in both communities is Long Term Care, and Chronic Care. I do also accept referrals for Acute as well as community. In both communities I am the only professional working with older adults and behaviours.

    I am still fairly new in my position, just over a year. Before this I have worked as a residential councilor for women and children fleeing abuse and as a child protection worker. I am looking forward to the chance to learn from others in the field.


    Hi Crystal – glad you enjoyed the first session! Based on your role, it sounds like the ECHO Care of the Elderly program is a great match for you!
