Child Bereavement Training

Child Bereavement UK and LSP have created an online version of the 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.

We understand this topic can be difficult and challenging for delegates and we are encouraging you to try and book in pairs, the idea being that you book a room at your hospital and do the session together. This will give you someone to talk to, to have a cuppa with in the breaks and go some way to address what we miss in attending training face to face.

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

Please note: We aim to go back to face to face delivery of this course when restrictions are lifted and guidance permits.
