Course description

The Pediatric End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) is a national initiative to improve end-of-life care (EOL). The ELNEC core curriculum has been developed to provide end-of-life education to health-care providers, which translates into excellent care to pediatric patients and their families.

Topics include

  • An introduction to palliative care.
  • Learning pain assessment and management.
  • Teaching symptom management in end-of-life care.
  • Ethical and legal issues in end-of-life care.
  • Cultural considerations at the end-of-life.
  • Communication skills for end-of-life nursing care.
  • Pain.
  • Strategies for teaching loss, grief, and bereavement.
  • Achieving quality care at the end-of-life.

Over the next few years, it is estimated that ELNEC-trained staff will touch the lives of six million patients and their families facing the end of life.
