Author DetailsThe End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) project is a national and international education initiative to improve palliative care. Since 2000, ELNEC is a collaboration between City of Hope, Duarte, CA and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), Washington, DC. The project, administered by City of Hope, provides undergraduate and graduate nursing faculty, CE providers, staff development educators, specialty nurses in pediatrics, oncology, critical care and geriatrics, and other nurses with training in palliative care so they can teach this essential information to nursing students, practicing nurses and other healthcare professionals.

Advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) are having to notify family members of patients with COVID-19 about the patient's death by telephone. This can be quite difficult if the APRN is not comfortable making the call. This educational tool guides the APRN through preparing for the call, making the call, delivering the news, and closing the call. Helpful tips for supporting the family are included.
