ELNEC Geriatric Module 7: Communication

Green Clock Hours: 1.00

Welcome to the Communication module in the ELNEC-Geriatric curriculum. Communication is the foundation of all we do in palliative care. It is critical in all healthcare situations, but is of special significance in palliative care and at the end of life. Interdisciplinary team members must work together with the older adult and their family in developing goals of care. Communication with older adults who have illnesses that make communication difficult or impossible is always challenging. But you have a unique opportunity to contribute to the compassionate care of older adults. Remember that communication is not always verbal. It also includes listening, being present, and “bearing witness.” Communication is a wonderful skill to have and we get better over time, especially if we pay attention to those who do it well.
