Project ECHO

Care professionals across Herefordshire and Worcestershire can now share best-practice thanks to a partnership between St Michael’s Hospice in Hereford, St Richard’s Hospice in Worcester, and Kemp Hospice in the Wyre Forest.

Called Project ECHO, its aim is to create a community of health professionals in nursing and residential homes throughout the two counties.
This is achieved by facilitating online forums to share knowledge and experiences in a safe and secure environment.

There will be three cohorts consisting of a programme of eight fortnightly sessions – each lasting no more than 90 minutes and focusing on specific aspects of palliative and end of life care.

Participants will be actively encouraged to reflect and discuss case studies from practice, helping promote the Project ECHO ethos of ‘everyone a learner, everyone a teacher’.

Cohort 1 will be on Friday’s, beginning on 9th April (11am-12.30pm).

Cohort 2 on Tuesday’s, beginning 7th April (2-3.30pm)

Cohort 3 on Monday’s, beginning 7th June (2-3.30pm).

Once an individual cohort has finished, members will be invited to join a monthly Herefordshire and Worcester ECHO Hub to continue sharing and learning.
