Partnerships: Project ECHO
Thames hospice has partnered with Hospice UK and Frimley ICS to create a new learning forum in palliative care where we all teach all learn to improve the care and experience for patients and their families.
Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a collaborative model of medical education and care management that empowers clinicians everywhere to provide better care to more people, right where they live.
The ECHO model™ does not actually “provide” care to patients. Instead, it increases access to specialty palliative treatment by providing front-line healthcare professionals with the knowledge and support they need to manage patients with complex palliative conditions. It does this by engaging healthcare professionals in a continuous learning system and partnering them in ‘knowledge networks’ through teleECHOTM sessions.
We have a care home package available (please contact us for more information) and are keen to hear from you if you are interested in forming other ECHO knowledge networks such as advance heart failure, advance respiratory conditions, MND.
For further information, please contact Director of Education and Innovation, Linda Freeman via firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01628 848964.
