At Marie Curie they believe everyone should get to lead the best life they can, right to the end. They are the UK’s leading end of life charity, providing frontline nursing and hospice care, a free support line and a wealth of information and support on all aspects of dying, death and bereavement. They also facilitate free learning ‘ECHO’ networks for health and social care professionals to share knowledge on relevant topics.
Their newest ECHO network will focus on ‘Let’s talk about death, dying and bereavement’. The purpose of this network is to empower a community to be confident in talking about death, dying and bereavement. The service you provide is placed in the heart of your local community and this training aims to help build a better compassionate community.
They are inviting you to be part of this network, which starts on Monday 25 September 2023, find out further details and how to register. This is likely to be a popular network, don’t miss out and register now.
This network is open to any community facing practitioner, whether in paid employment or volunteer roles, who are interested in exploring what death and dying means to us individually and as part of a wider community.
Project ECHO is an internationally recognised collaborative model of health education and care management that empowers health and social care professionals everywhere to provide better care to more people where they live. It is a methodology, designed for online learning, which uses technology, structure, training, and guided mentoring allowing communities of practice to enhance their skills, confidence and build relationships with other professionals.
The model promotes a democratic approach to learning from both ‘subject matter specialists’ and each other. Everyone a teacher, everyone a learner.
