BCCPC is the provincial hub partner for national ECHO project

Helping BC health care providers build capacity to provide a palliative approach to care

 

In partnership with Pallium Canada, BC Centre for Palliative Care becomes the provincial hub in BC within the National Palliative Care ECHO Project. The federally funded five-year initiative aims to build primary- or generalist-level capacity to provide a palliative care approach in communities and care settings.

As the provincial hub partner, BCCPC will be instrumental in helping health care providers build local palliative care capacity across BC, including in rural and remote regions and Indigenous communities.

A hub for building local capacity

BC Centre for Palliative Care will be the provincial hub partner for British Columbia, as part of Project ECHO’s “hub and spoke” education model. This way, BCCPC will be instrumental in helping health care providers to build local palliative care capacity across BC, including in rural and remote regions and Indigenous communities.

 

By equipping BC health care providers with knowledge, skills and confidence as well as up-to-date tools and resources, the result will be earlier, more effective and more compassionate palliative care for BC patients and their families.

 

Increasing skills and connection… free of charge

Palliative Care ECHO’s activities, information, and tools will be free to users, and will feature programs such as webinars, communities of practice, quality improvement workshops, case studies, and live online ‘journal watch’ webinars.
