Project ECHO

Project ECHO at Highland Hospice

Highland Hospice have been facilitating ECHO communities of practice since 2016, supporting Care Homes, Out of Hours Practitioners, Community Specialist Nurses (Macmillan Nurses), Community Pharmacists and more recently, Remote and Rural GPs. We are currently piloting some innovative non palliative groups in 2020, including specialist Realistic Medicine curriculums funded by the Scottish Government .

Dr Jeremy Keen is the lead consultant physician in palliative care at Highland Hospice and has been supporting and directing our ECHO project since its inception.
