The End-of-life Nursing Education Consortium
Oct 31 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm

People in our country deny death, believing that medical science can cure any patient. Death often is seen as a failure of the health care system rather than a natural aspect of life. This belief affects all health professionals. Despite their undisputed technical and interpersonal skills, health care professionals may not be completely comfortable with the specialized knowledge and skills needed at end of life.

The End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) project is a national education initiative to improve palliative care. The curriculum was developed by nationally recognized palliative care experts with extensive input from an advisory board and reviewers. ELNEC gives professionals the knowledge and skills required to positively impact the lives of patients and families facing serious illness or the end of life. Continuing Education credit is available.

ELNEC features specially-trained, experienced health care professionals addressing eight core topics:
• Nursing care at end of life
• Pain management
• Symptom management
• Ethical/legal issues
• Cultural considerations in end-of-life care
• Communication
• Loss, grief and bereavement
• Preparation for and care at time of death

Caregiver Support Group
Nov 1 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Caring for an aging loved one can be very rewarding, but also difficult and isolating. It’s okay to take a break. You have to take care of yourself to be able to care for others. Midland Care is here to support you with a range of services to meet your needs and those of your loved one.

Caregiver Support Group, held twice monthly on the first and third Thursday of each month, is free and open to anyone caring for a loved one. The group is facilitated by Judy Nagy, a retired LSCSW who brings nearly 20 years of experience as a support group facilitator to her volunteer service at Midland Care.

Please join us at caregiver group for:

  • Support from other caregivers
  • Community resource information
  • Answers to your questions
  • Coffee provided
