ELNEC attendees experience old age at TWU Dallas

Attendees at conference wearing googles and gloves

The Houston J. and Florence A. Doswell College of Nursing partnered with VITAS Healthcare to teach the End-of-Life-Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) curriculum for geriatric patients.  Over 150 attendees participated in the ELNEC consortium at the TWU T. Boone Pickens Institute of Health Sciences-Dallas Center.  The curriculum focuses on palliative and end of life care for older adults.   By using blurry glasses, wrapping arms and putting on gloves, attendees were able to experience old age, helping them become sensitized to the challenges that arise through the aging process.
