ELNEC-Pediatric Palliative Care
ELNEC-Pediatric Palliative Care (ELNEC-PPC) was adapted from the ELNEC-Core curriculum in 2003. ELNEC-PPC was developed by 20 pediatric palliative care experts, who recognized the unique needs of children and their families. Since its inception in August 2003, more than fifteen national courses have been provided across the US to date, along with six Association for Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Nurses (APHON) collaborative courses. Over 1715 pediatric nurses and other healthcare providers have attended one of these national train-the-trainer courses. In 2009, the curriculum was up-dated to include enhanced perinatal and neonatal content.
