Palliative care

Palliative Care ECHO is a series of interactive virtual mentoring sessions via Zoom that addresses a range of palliative care topics. It aims to increase palliative care knowledge, skills and confidence in primary care health professionals.

Each monthly session includes:

  • A palliative care specialist presentation – ten minute talk on the topic of the month
  • A deidentified case presentation by a primary care professional (do you have a case you’d like to share? Click here)
  • Lots of opportunities for Q&A and discussion

How does it work?

Project ECHO (Extension for Community Health Outcomes) is a virtual knowledge-sharing network designed to create a ‘learning loop’ between health professionals with the aim of increasing knowledge and access to health care in local communities.

What are the benefits?

  • A virtual network to share palliative care knowledge & experiences
  • An opportunity to connect with a specialist palliative care team
  • Improve local workforce capacity and delivery of high-quality palliative care
  • Improve access to effective palliative care for communities with limited access to specialist services
  • Promote choice for people with a life-limiting illness while increasing quality of life and reducing pain and discomfort
  • Increase job satisfaction and promote peer support and engagement between primary health services
