ELNEC Undergraduate and New Graduate Module 1: Introduction to Palliative Care Nursing

Green Clock Hours: 1.00

The Introduction to Palliative Care Nursing module serves as a foundation for this series. As central members of the interprofessional team, nurses must be prepared to provide competent and holistic care to persons with serious illnesses and their families (chosen and of origin). Primary palliative nursing care (PPNC) builds on your foundational nursing education and is expected of all nurses regardless of practice setting; it is care provided by the generalist nurse, not the specialist. As a nurse, you will become aware of gaps in current healthcare delivery systems, particularly when caring for patients with serious illnesses and their families. There are many factors that influence the quality of care provided, including social, access, economic, and environmental. It is vital that you collaborate with members of the interprofessional team to honor patients’ goals of care and to provide palliative care across the continuum of illness for all seriously ill patients and their families. This module provides an overview of palliative care and your unique and important role.

The goal of this module is to provide undergraduate and new graduate nurses with an overview of palliative care.
