Abstract

Major deficiencies continue to exist in pediatric palliative and end-of-life nursing education. The End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC)-Pediatric Palliative Care (PPC) train-the-trainer curriculum was developed to create a nursing education program to improve care for children and their families confronted with life-threatening illnesses (www.aacn.nche.edu/ELNEC). Two ELNEC-PPC training programs were held in August 2005 and August 2006. The purpose of this article is to present data from the precourse and 12-month postcourse follow-up of participants who attended the two courses. Findings from these assessments demonstrate a positive link between educational initiatives and clinical outcomes.
