Abstract

Background. To overcome insufficient attention to end-of-life (EOL) care in nursing education, the authors are developing the "Toolkit for Nursing Excellence at End-of-Life Transition" (TNEEL). Method. An evidence-based design process was used to create a computerized (CD-ROM) multimedia toolkit of instructional aides. An online survey of all U.S. undergraduate nursing programs was conducted to identify their current technologic infrastructures available for innovative teaching aides. Expert review process guided pedagogic decisions. Results. Survey findings enabled TNEEL development to be responsive to nurse educators' needs and preferences. Conclusion. Educators can use TNEEL to actively engage students in meaningful learning about EOL care.
