Palliative Care Nursing

Introducing Palliative Care to Your Practice Setting

Holding Hands End of life care is at the forefront. Daily the Advanced Practice Nurse (APN) sees patients on as they progress through illnesses. Frequently it is the APN who is talking with the patient and family about end of life decisions. This course is designed to help the APN in caring for patients and families in a more comprehensive manner as life nears an end. The course is part of the ELNEC (End of Life Nursing Education Consortium) curriculum from the City of Hope Hospital. This course does not certify the APN in end of life/palliative care. Upon completion of the two day course the participant will receive 16 contact hours and a certificate of completion of the ELNEC curriculum.
