Project ECHO is a distance learning methodology that breaks down hierarchies of specialist knowledge by creating virtual knowledge sharing networks.

It uses a 'learning loop' approach; specialist teams and local providers learn from each other by collaboratively problem solving real-time experiences and sharing best practice via video-conferencing.

Why is Project ECHO needed?

Project ECHO was set up as a hub in partnership with Humber, Coast & Vale Health and Care Partnership in 2020 and is based at Dove House Hospice.  The aim of the Project is to share expert knowledge from around Hull and the East Riding on a variety of topics.  Expert speakers might be from the Hospice, the CCG, GP Surgeries, Hospitals or out in the Community.

Who can take part?

Training is provided to organisations across Hull and East Riding free of charge.

The Format of an ECHO Session

A typical ECHO session is 60-90 minutes long.

A topic expert delivers a 20 minute teaching session with discussion. The participants then discuss current issues or experiences they face and determine the best course of action together through 1-2 ‘case presentations’.

To be involved in a session, you will just need access to a Zoom account. Discussions will take place using real-life cases, which in turn facilitates learning as no case is the same and many can have complexities.

After each Network each attendee will receive a certificate with CPD participatory hours. Project ECHO also works with the IPC Team who deliver donning and doffing of PPE equipment and Champions Training periodically throughout the year.
