ECHO Project – Current Series and Resources

BC Hub for Palliative Care ECHO

In partnership with Pallium Canada, the BC Centre for Palliative Care serves as the Provincial Hub for the Palliative Care ECHO Project in British Columbia.

What is ECHO Project? ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes)™ model creates virtual knowledge-sharing networks by bringing together healthcare providers and subject matter experts using videoconference technology, brief lecture presentations, and case-based learning, fostering an “all learn, all teach” approach.  ECHO Project, as a model, provides a combination of education, collaboration, mentorship, and resource/expertise sharing across the multidisciplinary team that will benefit all those working to improve the quality of life for people affected by serious illness. 

The vision of BC’s Hub for Palliative Care ECHO is for all care providers in BC to have equitable access to learning opportunities, resources and expertise to improve the quality of life of people affected by Serious Illness. 

Sessions are FREE to attend and open to a variety of audiences depending on the topic.

Who Can Attend

Health care providers who provide direct care for people with serious illness in any health care setting.


The sessions aim to support health care providers incorporate the palliative approach to care into their daily practice.

  • 30-minute interactive sessions designed to be a vehicle for sharing your own experience, resourcefulness, and inventiveness in your work with patients across the care systems.
  • Sessions build upon eight (8) Learning Hub modules created by a team of experts in palliative care and adult education, alongside a focus group of health care providers. This education can be applied to patients of any age, at any point from diagnosis to bereavement, in all care settings.
  • Each online module takes about 15 minutes to complete and are foundational learnings for health care providers who provide direct care for people with life-limiting illness in any health care setting.
  • Prior to attending these sessions, we encourage you to complete the first online module (Domain 1: Palliative approach) .
  • The sessions will bring further context to the learning hub content and give attendees an opportunity to learn from others and discuss case studies together.
