Bereavement Course for doctors

Child Bereavement UK and the London School of Paediatrics have created an online version of their well-received ‘Child Bereavement’ course for Paediatric Trainees in London. Aimed at ST4/5 (and those ST6s who may have missed out due to the pandemic) this course aims to give trainees understanding, skills and confidence in supporting bereaved parents and children.  This interactive 3-hour webinar will improve communication skills with parents and children in complex and difficult situations. It will also develop practical knowledge of medical procedures (post mortem, organ donation) and help trainees to support and look after themselves in situations of child bereavement.

Dates to book for 2021 are:

We understand this topic can be difficult and challenging for delegates and we are encouraging you to try and book in pairs. Try and book a room at your hospital and do the session together. This will give you someone to talk to, have a cuppa with in the breaks and go someway in addressing what we miss when we are face to face. 

The cost is £50 and this can be reclaimed back via study budget as this is HEE approved course.  

Please bring snacks for sharing (pandemic proof), a hot drink and we look forward to seeing you. Any queries email
