New NCI Curriculum on Palliative and End-of-Life Care
To address the educational needs of cancer healthcare providers, the NCI is releasing a new palliative and end-of-life care self-study curriculum.
The Education in Palliative and End-of-life Care for Oncology (EPEC™-O) CD-ROM & DVD was designed to provide:
- Knowledge and skills necessary to provide state-of-the-art palliative interventions for cancer patients.
- Educational tools and materials to use in teaching palliative care core competencies.
- An opportunity for physicians and nurses to earn continuing education credits through the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association.
Free copies of the EPEC™-O CD-ROM & DVD are available. To order this curriculum, please call NCI’s Cancer Information Service at 1-800-4-CANCER or go online.
The EPEC™–O curriculum was developed by the EPEC™ Project at Northwestern University with major funding from NCI and supplemental funding from the Lance Armstrong Foundation.
