Abstract:
Most nursing programs lack sufficient palliative care content meaning that nursing students may have insufficient knowledge to provide high-quality care for people facing death. A solution to this problem is for a team of interdisciplinary, end-of-life experts to create tools that can be used by nurse educators in academic and clinical settings. TNEEL (Tool-Kit for Nursing Excellence at End-of-Life Transition) provides nurse educators with such a solution. TNEEL, a CD-ROM-based program, is an easy-to-access, user-friendly package of tools to teach palliative care. Multiple teaching strategies are included in this evidence-based, multimedia toolkit of instructional aids. Educators can use these tools to engage students in meaningful learning activities. TNEEL includes six core end-of-life care topics: Comfort goals and preferences including assessment and management of pain and other symptoms; ethical and legal decision-making; connections (communications and relationships supporting patient and family-centered care); grief loss and bereavement; well-being (hope, suffering, complementary comfort therapies, spiritual and psychosocial needs); and impact (the impact of end-of-life care on patients, families, and society). Within each of these topics, the TNEEL teaching portfolio includes: student learning objectives; pre- and post-assessment items; common myths and misconceptions, definitions of terms; teaching materials (lecture outlines and text materials); PowerPoint(tm) slides with speaker/instructor notes using multimedia (video, audio, graphics) to illustrate learning activities; case studies for problem-based learning; learning activities that promote critical thinking; and resources (references, bibliographies, web resources, movies, books, arts). Core concepts are woven throughout TNEEL including individual and cultural diversity, family centered care across the lifespan, interdisciplinary collaborative care, settings and systems of care, and values and attitudes. TNEEL gives nurse educators access to electronic teaching aides that will meet their needs and preferences. With future advances such as hand-held and bedside computers, TNEEL could mentor students in effective end-of-life care when and where they need it most-with vulnerable individuals and families facing end-of-life transitions. TNEEL will be delivered, free of charge, to every academic nursing program and to 1,000 clinical agencies as a gift from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. This presentation will orient nurses to TNEEL's innovations and benefits.
