We at Four Seasons in Flat Rock, NC welcome you to ECHO HPM CARES (Hospice and Palliative Medicine COVID-19 Action and Resilience Education Support). Four Seasons in the Southeast and the Providence Health System in the Northwest are collaborating with the ECHO Institute at the University of New Mexico to offer this program, generously funded by the Cambia Health Foundation.
ECHO HPM CARES provides a response to the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on our hospice and palliative care communities through virtual hospice and palliative care sessions along with additional support services.
The sessions incorporate didactic presentations, case discussions, skills workshops, and facilitated debriefings. Several topical threads will wind throughout:
Additionally, patient case consultation services are available:
There are two clinical geographic hub sites (SE and NW) with two cohorts at each hub - one cohort for palliative care team members and one for hospice team members. Each cohort is open to ALL members of the interdisciplinary teams, and you are welcome to choose one or both cohorts.
Our intent over the grant period is to:
