Project ECHO

Project ECHO at Highland Hospice

Project ECHO has been facilitating communities of practice since 2016, supporting Care Homes, Out of Hours Practitioners, Community Nurses and GPs across Highland and Argyle and Bute. We have expanded our groups in 2020, to include networks addressing non palliative care learning including COVID 19 recovery and re-mobilisation as well as specialist Realistic Medicine curricula funded by the Scottish Government.

Project ECHO is also part of a UK network delivering the project in England and Northern Ireland and you can read about this partnership at the Hospice UK website.
