NHPCO’s Re-imaged E-Online Offers 24/7 Education to the Field

Important digital resource for hospice and palliative care education

(Alexandria, Va) – Given the demands on our time, budget constraints, and the challenge of finding work-life balance, there has never been a greater need for on-demand, online professional education. National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization is proud to announce the launch of the upgraded resource, NHPCO’s E-Online (E-OL).

Enhanced User Experience

E-Online has been redesigned with users in mind and built for a better online learning experience. The up-to-date design features a clearer navigation structure and search functionality that will help all professionals interested in person-centered care find a course that matches their specific learning objectives. Visitors will find easier site interaction with fewer clicks to access course content and complete education activities.

The re-imaged E-Online is mobile-responsive, so courses are can be accessed via any digital device, with no usability concerns regardless if a user is accessing a course via PC, laptop, mobile, or tablet.

Curated Course Catalog

NHPCO’s staff, faculty, and members of the Professional Education Committee have gone through all available courses on the previous E-OL site to select only the best offerings on relevant areas of practice and timely topics that bring value to hospice and palliative care professionals.

With a collection of courses that are available 24/7, users can stop a course and resume later to continue the course through completion. This makes learning available to the user when and where they are ready.

Instructor-led Courses

E-Online also features a series of live, instructor-led courses that begin throughout the year. Upcoming instructor-led modules include: Emotional Intelligence beginning January 27, The Interdisciplinary Team: Key Skills for Hospice Managers on February 3, Managing Conflict in the Workplace on March 9, and Ethics for Managers beginning April 6. Registration for these and other live modules is open now and these courses tend to reach capacity quickly.

“All the members of the Interdisciplinary Team who are interested in person- and family-centered care will find a course on E-Online that will help them deepen and expand their professional skills,” said NHPCO President and CEO Edo Banach.

No Additional Cost for CE/CME

CE/CME is available to member and non-member course participants at no additional cost. Users have the flexibility to select and claim CE/CME credit and certificate of completion from within the learning portal – an important upgrade from the previous E-OL system. With our upgraded E-Online, users will be able to determine the number of CE’s completed at any point during the year or at the end of the year for an easily accessible summary.

NHPCO Commitment

As part of NHPCO’s strategic priorities for 2020-2021, the organization is committed to making high-quality professional education available in a range of affordable formats that will address the skills and training needed to not only survive but thrive in today’s professional world. Ongoing upgrades to improve E-Online will include video, enhanced media, and interactive features that will increase engagement and enhance the learning experience.

Educational programming will expand as more on-demand courses are added and instructor-led sessions are offered. Conference programming from the annual Virtual Conference hosted by NHPCO, AAHPM, and HPNA will also be available via E-Online.

Reduced Pricing Structure

To encourage professionals to take advantage of this valuable digital learning portal, NHPCO is announcing a newly revised pricing structure: 30 to 50 percent off ALL courses (except for the Instructor-led MDP Modules). Additionally, various course bundle options are now available in a variety of topics at a discounted rate of three courses for the price of four.

Visit NHPCO’s E-Online and take advantage of the redesigned learning portal created for hospice and palliative care professionals and others interested in interdisciplinary care.
