VNSNY offers a variety of Continuing Education courses, open to both guests from outside the agency and VNSNY staff members. We invite you to attend one of our courses in 2016. Employees of Visiting Nurse Service of New York attend all CE Courses free-of-charge.
Pediatric ELNEC training End of Life Nursing Consortium
This course describes the care needs of children with life limiting and life threatening illness from diagnosis to end of life utilizing an interdisciplinary patient/family centered approach to care. It provides the basic assessment, caring and communication skills for clinicians providing palliative care to children and families with life threatening illness. Home care clinicians are in a position to assist families in critical decision making and goal revision due to their extended interactions in the home setting. Quality outcomes may be achieved by providing training to interdisciplinary team members and incorporating National Hospice and Palliative Care Organizations (NHPCO) guidelines to children and families.
This course runs in 2 parts: Tuesday 4/18/16 at 5 Penn Plaza and Thursday, 4/27/17 at 1250 Broadway, 3rd floor meeting room.
