The ECHO Chronic Pain Program is a joint project with The Ottawa Hospital (TOH). The ECHO (Extended Community Health Outcomes) Program is a capacity-building education program with a focus on case-based learning and didactics delivered by experts in chronic pain to health care clinicians in rural and remote areas. The purpose of the program is to help local clinicians deliver care close to the client's home and reduce unnecessary referrals to specialist physicians and speciality programs.

Reporting to the ECHO Project Manager, the Researcher applies specialized knowledge of research methodology, advanced statistical principles and scientific content expertise to research, evaluation, decision support and educational activities within the ECHO Project.
