ELNEC is an acronym that stands for End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium. The course provides nurses with education in palliative care preparing them to teach the information to practicing nurses and other healthcare professionals. The ELNEC content is divided into modules. Each module is accompanied by objectives, outline, PowerPoint slides, talking points for each slide, references, case studies, and supplemental teaching materials. The modules include: Palliative Nursing Care at the End of Life; Pain Management; Symptom Management; Communication; Final Hours; Loss, Grief & Bereavement; Leadership; and Self Care. Cultural Considerations and Ethical Issues are incorporated into the other modules.

Members of the interdisciplinary team are welcome to attend a national ELNEC train-the-trainer course. Interdisciplinary palliative care is essential and having other members of the healthcare team attend ELNEC enriches the experience. However, please note that ELNEC is written by nurses for nurses and the primary goal of ELNEC is to educate nurses providing palliative care and improving end of life care.

  • Updated curricula / detailed syllables
