In partnership with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), Project ECHO is mobilizing our national network of ECHO partners to rapidly deploy COVID-19 ECHO programs to train mentor, and support nursing home staff on infection prevention and control. With support from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), the ECHO Institute will provide training, mentorship, and support to nursing home staff on infection prevention and control to an estimated 15,000 nursing homes across the country.
