Hospice Education Network (HEN) and the End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) announce online Geriatric Palliative Care Curriculum
Date:6/29/2010

The Hospice Education Network adds the Geriatric Palliative Care Curriculum to its growing library of ELNEC courses.

(PRWEB) June 29, 2010 -- The Hospice Education Network (HEN) today announced the addition of nine End-of-Life Nursing Education (ELNEC) Geriatric Palliative Care modules to their current catalog of courses. The filming and inclusion of these modules in the HEN library marks another significant milestone in the collaboration between HEN and ELNEC, the premiere developer of end-of-life curriculum for nurses in the country. The HEN /ELNEC collaboration first began in December of 2008 with the online availability of ELNEC's Core Curriculum. In late Spring 2010, HEN added ELNEC's Pediatric Palliative Care Curriculum and will be adding ELNEC-For Veterans in the Fall of 2010

The aging population trends are staggering. The Administration on Aging (AOA), states that in 2010 the percent of the population 65 and older is 13% and is projected to increase to 25% by 2030. Aligned with that, according to Hartford Geriatric Nursing Initiative(HGNI), elders over 65 represent 60% of all ambulatory adult primary care visits, 80% of all home care visits, about 50% of inpatient care, and 85% of residents in nursing homes. Health care organizations must ensure that their staff is prepared to provide for the unique needs of older patients. As the number of elders grow, the number of patients seeking palliative care is also growing substantially each year. ELNEC has created the Geriatric Palliative Care Curriculum to meet this critical need and HEN is making it available online to health care organizations and professionals that serve this population.
