Four Seasons in Flat Rock, North Carolina is pleased to announce the creation of a new virtual hospice and palliative care community- Project ECHO HPM CARES (Hospice and Palliative Medicine COVID-19 Action and Resilience Education Support).  This project has been generously funded by the Cambia Health Foundation.  In collaboration with Project ECHO at the University of New Mexico,  Four Seasons and the Providence Health System we will create and support both a palliative care and a hospice cohort that will each meet twice monthly with a focus on COVID-19 related topics relevant to our specialties.  Topics to be covered include:  enhancing communication skills, embracing telehealth, treating COVID-19 in the community and inpatient hospice units, health inequities and social determinants of health, and fostering and promoting resilience.  There will be a strong emphasis on a guided practice/mentoring environment with case-based learning and skill-building exercises.  We will encourage an “all teach all learn” environment so that experiences at all levels of training will be equally valued.  If you live in one of the following states- LA, MS, FL, GA, SC, NC, TN, KY, WV, VA, OR, WA and CA- in the Southeastern US or the Pacific Northwest and have interest in connecting with your peers and learning from valued leaders in our fields, please contact us.  We will launch in June 2020.  The sessions are free of charge and are open to all members of interdisciplinary hospice and palliative care teams.
