What is Project ECHO at Farleigh Hospice?

Project ECHO is a new way of telementoring. Joining Project ECHO will give you the opportunity to network with other health care professionals in the area, to form a community of practice, share best practice and support each other.

All team members who would benefit from the experience can join you at the meetings, to receive education and a chance to discuss cases from practice.
