ELNEC Core Curriculum

The End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) project is an international education initiative to improve palliative care around the world. No other healthcare professional spends more time at the bedside than the nurse supporting physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs. The research indicates that a lot of nurses do not feel competent or confident to be able to provide this holistic end-of-life care for patients and families.

The curriculum was developed through the work of nationally recognized palliative care experts with extensive input from an advisory board and reviewers. The ELNEC-Core content is divided into eight modules: 
Nursing Care at the End-of-Life Pain Management
Symptom Management Ethics
Cultural Considerations Communication
Loss, Grief, Bereavement         Final Hours

This course is based on the End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium training model previously supported by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing and City of Hope National Medical Center.

Who Should Attend?
ELNEC is developed by nurses for nurses, we welcome all nurses from all healthcare settings, as well as other members of the interdisciplinary healthcare team, such as social workers, chaplains, volunteers, bereavement coordinators, discharge planners, SNF liaisons, case managers, and nurse practitioners, who have an interest in palliative care and care at the end of life.
This course is a great introduction to End of Life care or an encompassing review for more seasonsed staff.
