Needs Statement

There is a shortage of both primary care physicians and specialists. The “Texas Specialty Ratio” found that Texas has fewer physicians per capita than the national average for 36 out of 40 major medical specialty groups. This further contributes to a shortage in specialty healthcare in underserved and uninsured areas. When patients are referred to a specialist, but may not comply initially, they can be easily lost in the system, due to lack of follow up caused by shortages. As a result, primary providers often need to treat their patients with complex diseases. Project ECHO can assist by training providers in the community into specialty healthcare, as a case based learning program.



At the conclusion of the session, the participants should be able to:

  • Identify patients at risk for complex diseases in order to screen and treat appropriately.
  • Distinguish how to assess patients for viral hepatitis.
  • Determine the need for hepatitis therapy based on patient assessment.
  • Review how to initiate hepatitis treatment and options for continued hepatitis treatment.


Target Audience

This activity is intended for primary care physicians, fellows, residents, physician assistants, nurses, and nurse practitioners.


Educational Methods

Educational methods will include lectures.


Activity Evaluation

Participants may be asked to complete a session evaluation.
