Primary Palliative Care for All: Are Your Nurses Prepared?
About This Webinar
Research has demonstrated that palliative care benefits not only the patient and family quality of life, but also improves length of life and lowers health care costs. However, the demand for specialty palliative care services exceeds the resources available. Nurses prepared to provide primary palliative care can fill this serious gap in care, but they cannot practice what they do not know.
Discover how you can educate you nurses to meet this demand, and in turn, improve quality of care and your bottom-line.
- Describe the growing demand for palliative care across the U.S.
- Discuss the importance of educating all nurses in primary palliative care
- Describe how to utilize the ELNEC curricula to meet the educational needs of busy, practicing nurses
