CPS ECHO

The CPS Echo is a great opportunity to learn from a panel of seven subject matter experts and get feedback from other peer specialists.  They happen on the first and third Wednesday of every month from 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. and each one attended is worth one contact hour.  It is FREE, and these contact hours can be used towards renewing your CPS credential.   Each ECHO will consist of the panel providing some information to the peer specialists (around 20 minutes), and then the rest of the time is spent reviewing case studies which have been submitted ahead of time by peer specialists.   To sign up for the CPS ECHO’s, please click on this link: Show-Me ECHO: Move Knowledge, Not Patients (showmeecho.org)
