Module 3: Supporting the Bereaved Family

In this module, Module 3 we will cover the front-line aspects of bereavement care.

You will learn what parent-centred care means which is underpinned by the extremely important five core goals of that care. This is the backbone of what needs to be done in the hospital setting and this is how I care for families when they are in front of me.

These core goals of bereavement care are recommendations from the PSANZ guidelines which informs this module. There is a link to these guidelines in the reference list at the end of this training and I highly recommend you seek these out and have a copy of them at your workplace.

This is also a very practical module with tips on the ‘what to say and do’ and how to go about it.

This module is a big one so let’s get started!
