The End of Life Education Consortium (ELNEC) broadly outlines end-of-life care for those caring for adult patients in oncology, medical/surgical settings, hospices, palliative care settings, homecare, clinics, home-based facilities, etc.
The two-day course, led by palliative care experts will review topical modules: Introduction to Palliative Nursing, Pain Management, Symptom Management, Communication, Ethical & Legal Issues, Cultural Considerations, Loss/Grief/Bereavement, and Final Hours. In addition, you will participate in role plays, case studies, and have opportunities to explore ways in improving your own self-care. There are also wonderful opportunities to network with others from across the US who are committed to improving care for all patients with life-limiting illness.
