2019 PPCC Annual Conference/ELNEC Pediatric Palliative Care Training Course

Thanks to our sponsors, exhibitors and attendees for a wonderful event!

While the Pediatric ELNEC course was designed for nurses, it is a fantastic curriculum for the entire interdisciplinary team. Past attendees say it best:

" I was very impressed with the quality of the presentation and the amount of information conveyed. I wish more physicians could have been present - I gained a huge appreciation for the time and emotional investment that nurses put into this field on a daily basis."


"Before this conference, I was nervous to care for the patient who was end-of-life receiving palliative care. Now I am able to put what I learned into the practice and have a newfound confidence for this patient population."

"I have been given much helpful information not only from the excellent teaching staff who deal with these issues every day, but I also gained an awareness that it is definitely alright not to have one set of 'right' approaches; to be able to loosen up, listen, and especially to be empathetic."
