End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) Summit
April 15 - April 16
The End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) project is a national and international education initiative to improve palliative care and is administered by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) in Washington, D.C., and City of Hope, in Duarte, CA. The project provides training in palliative care with essential information to nursing students and practicing nurses, including undergraduate and graduate nursing faculty, continuing education providers, staff development educators, specialty nurses in pediatrics, oncology, critical care, geriatrics and advanced practice nurses. ELNEC also welcomes other health care professionals. The project, which began in February 2000, was initially funded by a major grant from The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Additional funding has been received from Aetna Foundation, Archstone Foundation, California HealthCare Foundation, Cambia Health Foundation, Milbank Foundation, National Cancer Institute, Oncology Nursing Foundation, Open Society Foundations, Stupski Foundation, U.S. Cancer Pain Relief Committee and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
