The End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) Project is a national and international end- of-life/palliative care educational program administered by City of Hope (COH) designed to enhance palliative care in nursing. The ELNEC curriculum addresses the essential components of palliative care, including the family as the unit of care, the important role of the nurse as advocate, the imperative for interdisciplinary care in ensuring quality palliative care, the importance of culture as an influence in palliative care, critical financial issues that influence palliative care, and the critical need for attention to special populations such as ethnic minorities, the poor, and the uninsured.  

Target Audience 

Staff nurses, advanced practice nurses, undergraduate and graduate nursing faculty, administrators, and researchers who work in pediatric acute care settings (i.e. medical-surgical and oncology units), clinics, homecare, hospice, and palliative care settings.
