The Pediatric End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) is a national initiative to improve end-of-life care (EOL). The ELNEC core curriculum has been developed to provide end-of-life education to health-care providers, which translates into excellent care for pediatric patients and their families.
