Your Input Needed on End-of-Life Care in the ED Survey

ENA is conducting a study on current practices related to end-of-life care in the emergency department. The information obtained will provide critical insight to help understand emergency nurses’ knowledge of, beliefs, and attitudes about end-of-life care. We invite you to participate in an online survey which is expected to take 20-25 minutes.

Collaborative Initiatives


National Implementation of the Comprehensive Unit-Based Safety Program to Reduce Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections

ENA is committed to participating in the AHRQ-funded, hospital-based safety initiative to reduce catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) nationwide. ENA’s essential role in this national implementation project is to educate its members about CAUTI prevention in the emergency department and identifying members to participate in a national network of clinical faculty. Identified faculty will be developed to coach and mentor hospital units participating in the project, participate in site visits, develop content and incorporate emergency department curriculum into train-the-trainer programs within the project, and provide strategic guidance. In addition to a network of national faculty, ENA will have the opportunity to identify and develop regional CAUTI emergency department nurses.
