Part III: Meeting the Palliative Care Needs of Veterans:
DATE: MAY 9, 2012
TIME: 1:00 - 2:00 pm (ET)
AACN is proud to support the Joining Forces campaign. Joining Forces is a comprehensive national campaign launched by First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden to mobilize all sectors of society to give our service members and their families the opportunities and support they deserve. This series of free Webinars will showcase innovative approaches to preparing students and nurses to care for service members and veterans.
In 2010, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) awarded the City of Hope a three-year contract to educate nurses on how to provide better palliative care for Veterans with life-threatening illnesses. A new curriculum was been developed, ELNEC-For Veterans, to meet the unique needs of nurses caring for veterans with life-limiting illness. Join the Dr. Betty Ferrell, primary investigator of ELNEC to discuss the ELNEC-For Veterans program and its impact on the care of veterans.
