We, along with St Michael’s Hospice in Hereford and KEMP Hospice in the Wyre Forest, are a hub for project ECHO (extension for community healthcare outcomes). We use video conferencing technology to share knowledge and promote best practice. This resource is free of charge to Herefordshire and Worcestershire based healthcare staff.
Training and education events are hosted regularly, with the format being approximately 45 minutes of teaching on a specific subject, followed by a further 45 minutes of facilitated discussion and learning from each other.
We are currently running both the
- monthly palliative and end of life ECHO hub, on the last Thursday of every month 2-3.30pm with a guest speaker and different topic each month
- six-week end of life care programme, which has a different subject for each of the six weeks, these six sessions are then repeated in the next cohort of dates.
