Institute for End-of-Life Care Education

Marquette University is committed to improving the state of end of life care in this nation. We believe that peaceful death with dignity is a right for all persons and we're taking action to make that happen through:

  • Course content to enhance nurses' competence in end-of-life care, such as grief and bereavement, ethical issues at end-of-life, and care for the dying child
  • Ongoing continuing education programming relating to end-of-life care
  • Distance learning modules on end-of-life care
  • Lecture series for the College of Nursing faculty, university faculty and the community dealing with specific end-of-life issues
  • Providing community information on topics such as legal issues and misconceptions about end-of-life symptoms
  • Ongoing research related to end-of-life care patients and their families

Fully endowing the Institute for End-of-Life Care Education will enable the College of Nursing to appoint an End of Life chair to be the institutes director, as well as supporting the institutes operational costs, materials, faculty and online course development..

Institute for Natural Family Planning

Although bearing children is a holy purpose of marriage, many couples struggle with this aspect of Catholic life. Through natural family planning, the use of various methods helps women and men determine fertile and infertile times in order to achieve or avoid pregnancy. Thus Catholic families are better able to live within the faith and teachings of the Church. Marquette is the only Catholic institution in the United States that offers university-level courses for credit to prepare health professionals in NFP while providing research and direct services to families. The Institute for Natural Family Planning has a national impact on Catholic families through national conferences and training programs for couples, nurses, midwives and other medical personnel.
