It is very important that all hub and spoke participants from your knowledge network attend your ECHO network training day (normally 3 hours) as this will provide you with useful information about the ECHO project and enable you to contribute to agreement on dates, times and curriculum topics for your upcoming ECHO sessions. This information will then be transferred into an ECHO programme/curriculum for your ECHO meetings. Case presentations will also be discussed and allocated at your training day.
You will also get a chance to meet different people who will be involved in coordinating and attending your network meetings such as other spokes, hub team, IT, administration, alongside, the lead and facilitator. At the training day you will also receive a training pack which will have a variety of documents inside with important information for you to familiarise yourself with so as you understand the ECHO ethos and practicalities. You may also receive a pre ECHO evaluation in this, which you are required to complete and return to the administrator of your Knowledge network.
