Course Description and Program Learning

The ELNEC core curriculum has been developed to provide end-of-life education to health-care providers, which translates
into excellent care to pediatric patients and their families. ELNEC Pediatric Palliative Care was adapted for the unique needs of
children and their families. The updated course contains enhanced perinatal and neonatal content. Although geared to nurses,
this course will benefit health care providers from all disciplines who work with medically fragile children and their families.


  • Bolster professional development
  • Deliver high-quality care to our sickest patients
  • Deliver competent care to patients and families with end-of-life and palliative care needs and feel more confident doing so
  • Reduce stress and burnout related to caring for patients


While the Pediatric ELNEC course was designed for nurses, it is a fantastic curriculum for the entire interdisciplinary team. Past attendees say it best:
