Abstract:
End Of Life (EOL) Education For Graduate Nursing Educators
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2004
Conference Date:July 22-24, 2004
Author:Paice, Judith, PhD, RN, FAAN
P.I. Institution Name:Northwestern University Medical School
Title:Research Professor of Medicine
Co-Authors:Rose Virani, RN, MHA, OCN; Betty R. Ferrell, PhD, FAAN; Marcia Grant, RN, DNSc, FAAN
Objectives: This paper presents an end of life faculty development project designed for Graduate Nursing education. Advanced practice nurses (APNs) who are well prepared to treat patients and families facing life threatening illness can be influential in providing excellent clinical care, educating professionals, patients, families, and the public, conducting quality improvement efforts to improve practice, and researching pertinent issues to advance the science of palliative care. Design: The Graduate ELNEC curriculum includes nine EOL core areas with detailed teaching materials to integrate this content into graduate nursing curricula and clinical practice. Population, Sample, Setting, and Years: The first national training course, held in June 2003, was attended by 60 graduate nursing faculty from 60 schools in 34 states. Concept and Outcome Variables: The educational evaluation consists of pre course evaluation, course evaluation and 12 month follow up of implementation efforts. Methods: This presentation will describe the course development and provide additional evaluation data derived from the course summaries and participant goals pre-course and post-course. Findings: The participants overall course rating was x=4.8 on a scale of 1=lowest to 5=highest rating. In pre-course surveys, the participants perceived that EOL care as very important to graduate nursing education (x=9; scale of 1=not important to 10=very important) and that their own faculty are very receptive to increasing EOL content in the curriculum (x=8.5). Conclusions: This national effort is a significant measure toward increasing EOL care in Graduate nursing curricula, thereby preparing advanced practice nurses to improve care of the dying. Implications: This project will continue to impact all of the Graduate Nursing programs in nursing in the U.S. through inclusion of all programs in this national educational program.
