									CSU Institute for Palliative Care Offers Course for Nurses Working with
Veterans

The two-day program is intended for nurses caring for veterans in any health care setting.

San Marcos, CA, February 27, 2013 --(PR.com)-- The California State University Institute for Palliative
Care at CSU San Marcos will offer an End of Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) for Veterans
course April 1-2 at the Handlery Hotel in San Diego.

The ELNEC for Veterans course will address the unique palliative care needs of veterans and provide
education and training for nurses caring for veterans in any health care setting, including communication,
pain management, symptom management, loss, grief and bereavement, and final hours. In addition to
helping nurses improve the quality of palliative care they offer to veterans, the two-day program will also
ensure course participants have the vital information and skills needed to improve end of life care for all
patients.

“Making this course one of our first offerings reflects the importance we assign to care for veterans
within the CSU system, at our Cal State San Marcos home campus and at the Institute,” said Institute
Executive Director Helen McNeal. “It also reflects recognition of the large veteran population that is
served by health care systems in San Diego, Southwestern Riverside and Southern Orange counties.”

The two-day program will take place 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 1-2 at the Handlery Hotel located at 950 Hotel
Circle N. in San Diego.
