Palliative Care ECHO 2.0 Improving Care for those with Serious Illness

Sessions will be held the first Thursday of each month from 12:00-1:00pm EST starting October 6th, 2022 through June 1st, 2023. 


Palliative care clinicians manage complex symptoms, work with patients and families to establish goal aligned care, and strive to improve
the quality of life for those with serious illness. Most clinicians can provide primary palliative care for those with serious illness and at the
end of life. In Year 2 of the Interprofessional Palliative ECHO® program, we will expand on pertinent topics through didactic presentations
and participants’ case-based presentations in this teach-teach/learn-learn model. Clinicians will acquire skills and establish professional
connections to improve the care of patients with serious illness and at the end-of-life.


Learning Outcome:

At the conclusion of this activity, (at least 75% of) participants will be able to competently care for patients in need of palliative care.
