The Palliative Care ECHO Project - BC Hub

The Palliative Care ECHO Project - BC Hub

The BC Centre for Palliative Care works with partners in health systems and community to accelerate the spread of innovations and best practices in palliative care.

The multidisciplinary team and collaborative approach to service and care includes physicians, nurses, social workers, spiritual advisors, pharmacists, personal support workers, volunteers and community all working together to support the patient and the family.

We believe that Extensions for Community Healthcare Outcomes (ECHO), as a model, provides a combination of education, collaboration, mentorship, and resource/expertise sharing across the multidisciplinary team that will benefit all those working to improve the quality of life for people affected by serious illness.

Sessions are free to attend and open to a variety of audiences depending on the topic, please see the session or cohort page for registration information.

Partner with Us to Create an ECHO

In partnership with Pallium Canada, BC Centre for Palliative Care (BCCPC) is the provincial hub in BC of the Palliative Care ECHO Project. The federally funded five-year initiative aims to cultivate communities of practice and establish continuous professional development among health care providers who care for patients with life-limiting illness.

BCCPC is looking to partner with BC organizations to support them in establishing ECHO programs. The aim being to equip BC health care providers with knowledge, skills, networking opportunities, tools and resources in order to provide earlier, more effective and more compassionate palliative care for BC patients and their families.
