GVHD 5 - ECHO Program: Atypical Manifestations of Chronic GVHD
The goal of the GVHD Interactive Provider Network ECHO Program is to connect GVHD specialists with community providers to share expertise, discuss cases and improve patient care.
The network is based on the ECHO Model™ (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) which uses proven adult learning techniques and interactive video technology to connect community providers with specialists in collaborative sessions.
The sessions, designed around case-based learning and mentorship, will help primary care and community-based practitioners gain the practical expertise required to care for GVHD patients. Questions and comments from the learners will be encouraged to facilitate discussion.
After completing this CE activity, the participant should be better able to:
- Explain how chronic GvHD can present with atypical manifestations in organ systems not classically described by the NIH consensus criteria.
- Discuss what is known (and what is not known) about chronic GvHD involving the hematopoietic system, peripheral and central nervous system, kidneys, MSK, and serosal membranes.
- Review how to integrate the assessment of atypical chronic GVHD into patient care, including some of the limitations in doing so.
