The Case for Palliative Care Training Is Clear

The business case for the value of palliative care programs is well-documented, and a growing body of research shows that palliative care can help acute, post-acute and community organizations achieve their goals—high-quality, coordinated care at low costs. What’s more, palliative care has tremendous benefits for patients and families who receive it.

With such positive outcomes, it’s no surprise that there is a steadily growing demand for all care providers to be properly trained in the principles and specific skills of palliative care. The goal is to treat the whole person to improve overall quality of life.

ELNEC: Industry Thought Leaders

For over 15 years, the End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) has worked across the nation to improve palliative care. The ELNEC Project is a national educational program administered by City of Hope National Medical Center (COH) and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN).

ELNEC develops nationally recognized palliative care educational modules for nurses and nurse educators so they can teach this essential information to nursing students and practicing nurses. ELNEC courses are designed to improve the quality of palliative care and are presented by nationally recognized experts.

ELNEC Experiential Training Outcomes

When University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics’ (UIHC) Palliative Care Team recognized that palliative care education is central to coordinated, high-quality patient care, they provided scholarships for 100 nurses to complete Relias’ online ELNEC program.

The results? Nurses felt better prepared to provide palliative care that can be integrated across settings to affect quality care at end of life. Also, since the initiation of the ELNEC program, UIHC’s HCAHPS adult inpatient scores for ‘‘was your pain well controlled?’’ have risen to the 71st percentile nationally.
