PalliLearn ECHO Series

Covenant Health Palliative Institute

Are you part of an Alberta-based community organization interested in promoting palliative care education in your community? 

Are you a healthcare professional with palliative care experience who is interested in providing public education? 

If so, please join the Covenant Health Palliative Institute for its PalliLearn ECHO webinar series this fall.

PalliLearn is a series of short courses that help people to develop the knowledge and skills to be a supportive friend and neighbour in times of sickness and loss. The courses incorporate key research findings and practical ways to put them into action. The PalliLearn ECHO series is a train-the-trainer program that includes four pilot sessions – one for each PalliLearn course – and one three-hour facilitator training session.
