ELNEC Core Module 3: Symptom Management

Green Clock Hours: 2.00

Welcome to the Symptom Management course in the ELNEC Core Curriculum. This course will provide you with an overview of common symptoms in patients with serious illnesses. There is a wide variety of common physical and psychological symptoms in palliative care, thus this course is divided by systems (e.g., respiratory, gastrointestinal, psychological, and a range of other symptoms). Those with serious illnesses will most likely present with multiple symptoms. That is why it is important for you to be knowledgeable about evidence-based symptom management and optimum treatments. There is an emphasis on your essential role in recognizing, assessing, and managing symptoms. The interdisciplinary collaboration necessary in managing symptoms to enhance quality of life and reduce unnecessary suffering cannot be overstated. The goal of this course is to provide nurses with knowledge of symptom management.
