Health inclusion: Homelessness and end of life care ECHO

 Join in with GPs, consultants, specialist nurses, palliative care link workers, Sheffield Health and Social Care teams, substance abuse services, emergency department teams, paramedics and police in this unique community of practice.

This new and innovative, online training programme is available FREE of charge in your place of work or at home using videoconferencing software. Training sessions will be facilitated by the St Luke’s superhub team and experts in the field of homelessness from a hub centre at St Luke’s. Participants can join in the sessions as a group or as individuals. Up to 49 “spoke” spaces are available.

Tailor-made to meet your needs, as project members you will collectively contribute to and decide on the topics to be covered during the 5 x 90-minute training sessions.

What will participation entail?

Attendance at an initial online induction session to learn about Project ECHO and to discuss and agree the course curriculum is essential, and will enable the community of practice to develop as we share learning and experiences over the course of the programme.

Participants will be able to join all of the sessions online using a computer, tablet or phone and support with the technology will be available every step of the way. All the sessions’ materials and resources will be sent to participants after each session. It is recommended that attendees commit to attending at least 4 out of the 5 sessions.

Sessions will be delivered 2.30 pm – 4.00 pm on the following dates:
