Bereavement training updated

Posted on: March 21st, 2024 by Kieron Bradshaw No Comments

Our National Bereavement Care Pathway training has been reviewed and updated to ensure that language is in line with current guidance, and to add links to sources of information and support.

Pregnancy loss and child death impacts a significant number of families each day. The core aims of the training are to improve quality of bereavement care and to reduce variance across services.

Created in collaboration with charities, professional organisations and people with first-hand experience, the training is free to access and can be used by anybody who may come into contact with someone who is bereaved through loss of a baby, including non-clinical professions.

Understanding the needs of couples who have suffered pregnancy or baby loss can build confidence in all staff who are in contact with them, supporting them to approach families and offer care and communication in a parent-centred way. This can reduce further distress and isolation which can impact on the mental health of both parents.
