NHS Tayside Palliative Care ECHO

Who we are

Project ECHO in Tayside is based in Perth and Kinross at the Cornhill Macmillan Centre . The Project ECHO team consists of a nurse Practice Educator and a Speciality Doctor, who are ECHO facilitators; administration and IT support and Consultant leadership from Dr Claire Douglas.

Current and planned work

We have established ECHO groups with Community Hospital Nurses, Community Nurses, Palliative Care Clinical Nurse Specialists, Care Home staff and Care at Home providers.

Within our care home network we have facilitated groups on specific topics. These have included series of sessions focused on psychological and emotional support for staff affected by the pandemic, nutrition in palliative care and Foundations in Palliative and End of Life Care for support workers. We hope to continue using Project ECHO to support education in response to identified needs.
