The California HealthCare Foundation (CHCF) provided funding for the development of the ELNEC-Geriatric curriculum in 200 and funded two train-the-trainer courses. This curriculum addresses the unique needs of geriatric nurses who work in long-term care and skilled nursing facilities, and hospices that service these facilities. Nurses from acute care settings, clinics, and homecare also find the training helpful to their practice of caring for the older adult. Undergraduate and graduate nursing faculty find the course, its supplemental teaching materials and case studies invaluable to their current lectures. In addition, the curriculum includes supplemental teaching strategies for educating unlicensed personnel that work with geriatric patients and their families. Currently, over 780 geriatric nurses and other interdisciplinary team members have attended one of these national courses. The Archstone Foundation funded three ELNEC-Geriatric courses from 2008-2010.
