Title:
End of Life (EOL) Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC)

Abstract:
Previous research has demonstrated that nursing education has not prepared nurses to provide optimum EOL care; and yet, care of patients at the EOL is contingent on adequate preparation of healthcare providers. To date, there has not been a unified or organized effort to broadly address the preparation of nurses in EOL care. The purpose of this Robert Wood Johnson Foundation-funded project (2000-2003) is to develop and implement a comprehensive national effort to improve EOL care by nurses through a joint collaboration between the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) and the City of Hope Cancer Center. Based on the AACN "Peaceful Death" document, the ELNEC curriculum focuses on nine EOL core areas: nursing care at EOL; pain management; symptom management; ethical/legal issues; cultural considerations; communication; grief, loss, and bereavement; preparation and care for the time of death; and achieving quality care at the EOL. This project is a synthesis of research and knowledge in EOL care and is intended to assist clinical nurses with implementing scientifically based care in practice. Eight national training courses follow the development of the core training curriculum to enhance EOL expertise in faculty in undergraduate nursing programs (five courses) as well as in continuing education programs (two courses) and the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, Inc. staff and state boards (one course). Development of the ELNEC program includes detailed teaching materials to integrate EOL content into existing nursing curricula and clinical teaching. The projected outreach is to 135,000 registered nurses who will receive EOL training/education through schools' or agencies' educational programs as a result of these eight training programs. This presentation will provide description of evaluation methods as well as preliminary results for the five undergraduate courses: standard course evaluation summaries; curriculum surveys conducted pre-course and at 12 months; and participant goals conducted pre-course, immediate post-course, and at six and 12 month post course. This national organized effort is a major step toward preparing nurses in EOL care to improve care of the dying.
