Keech Hospice: Communities of Practice: Project Echo
Intended Audience Group: Any healthcare professional or member of the public.
Project ECHO aims to create communities of practice using virtual meetings to provide support and learning for those attending. The methodology arose from the work of Dr Sanjeev Arora in New Mexico and has grown into a worldwide movement aimed at improving patient care in underserved areas. The model demonopolises specialist knowledge and expands access to critical care or services. Keech Hospice hosts an ECHO network focusing on the Transition of young people from children’s to adult services in palliative care.
