The Weitzman ECHO Complex Integrated Pediatrics connects primary care medical and behavioral health providers nationally with a multidisciplinary team of experts and specialists in complex pediatric care. The Complex Integrated Pediatrics clinic uses twice-monthly videoconferencing sessions to explore a variety of medical and behavioral health topics designed to improve the quality of care and clinical outcomes for rural and underserved children and adolescents. Experts from Community Health Center, Inc., the School-Based Health Alliance, the Child Guidance Center of Southern Connecticut, and rotating guest specialists present on key issues and provide recommendations on challenging cases posed by participants. The clinic is designed to emphasize the integration and collaboration between medical and behavioral health providers, reducing variations in care. Participants develop new clinical competencies and confidence with complex pediatric cases. The 10-month curriculum addresses topics such as RSV, substance use, asthma, anxiety, obesity, trauma, neurodiversity-affirming care, and nonsuicidal self-injury.
