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.
