    At Children’s National, we run a 12 month curriculum based upon the ELNEC-PPC course.  The first 2 days are more the traditional ELENC-PPPC, followed by quarterly education sessions, and ending with another 1 day intensive. The program is open to all staff, interdisciplinary and all units.  One of the largest groups of participants is our Heme/Onc and BMT unit.  Those who compete the program become palliative care resources on their units. We also invite our community hospitals  and hospices to participate.  We have had very successful outcomes and sustained interest over 4 years with this approach.  Happy to talk with you more if you would like more details.
    Thanks, Debbie

    • Do all nurses in your peds Hem/Onc/SCT unit attend?
