Libbesmeier attends nursing consortium Nurses spend more time with patients who are facing the end of life than any other member of the health care team. Yet, studies have shown that many nurses feel inad- equately prepared to provide the comprehensive care so important at the end of life. Jill Libbesmeier, BSN, RN, an oncoIogy nurse at St. Cloud Hos- pital and resident of Kimball, has recently attended a national ELNEC-Core "Train the Trainers" course. This two-day course on end-of-life care was held in Den- ver, Colo. The American Associa- tion of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) and City of Hope (COH) had origi- nally received a three-and-a-half- year grant (2000-2003) from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to develop and help implement End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC-Core). This program entitled ELNEC-Core is for nurses who provide/conduct continuing education courses in specialty areas such as oncology, hospice, nurse educators and con- tinuing education providers. This project is led by Betty R. Rerrell, RN, PhD, FAAN, FPCN (COH) as the principal investigator. Jill was one of 100 nurses from across the United States to attend this training program. The prin- cipal goal of the training program is to provide nursing continuing education providers with infor- mation on end-of-life/palliative care and resources to integrate end-of-life/palliative care content into their inservice programs or courses. Course content was pre- sented in several participatory formats including lecture, open forum discussion, small group activities, and training sessions. The training program was con- ducted by a distinguished faculty of researchers, educators, authors, and leaders in the field of palliative care. Topic areas included nursing care at the end of life/palliative care; pain and symptom assess- ment and management; cultural considerations; ethical issues; commuynication; loss, grief and bereavement; final hours of life; and achieving quality care at the end of life.
