Training & Workforce Development

The issue

Healthcare professionals working in children’s hospitals are busy caring for complex patients. Sometimes connecting with peers and sharing best practices can be challenging, especially for professions where no clear international network exists.

How we work

The Secretariat works with members to identify professionals interested in leveraging the ECHO network to connect with peers and collectively their drive practice forward.  Every practice group establishes its own agenda and objectives. ECHO provides logistical and organisational support and, when requested, co-leads groups with content experts.


Current ECHO practice networks

  • Nursing
  • Rare diseases
  • Bioethics
  • Safeguarding
