Many schools of nursing are evaluating and aligning their nursing curricula with the AACN Essentials to address all spheres of care, including, hospice/palliative/supportive care. We are excited to offer a 1 ½ day workshop for faculty at schools of nursing to advance undergraduate palliative care education. This workshop intends to prepare faculty to serve as leaders in advancing palliative care curricula within their schools. Meals, housing, registration, and materials are all covered for selected participants through the generous sponsorship of ELNEC, City of Hope, the University of Portland School of Nursing and Health Innovations, and Cambia Health Foundation.
Selected participants will engage in an active learning environment on topics that include palliative care educational resources, evaluation measures, and teaching strategies. Finally, selected participants have the option to submit an abstract for a poster presentation related to current or planned palliative or end-of-life activities at their school. Selected participants will agree to complete a six- and twelve-month post-workshop survey.
