Feedback from previous course (November 2021)
  • The whole day was absolutely excellent. I will recommend any future courses highly to my colleagues.
  • I think this was an excellent course which should be attended by all O&G trainees, as we don't have any formal training on how to provide care/support to bereaved parents.
  • Great line-up of speakers and sessions, thoroughly enjoyed the day. Extremely informative and interesting - would definitely be keen to attend future courses.
  • I generally just feel much more confident in how to care for families who have suffered a bereavement.
  • It was very educative. The knowledge gained from the training has improved my confidence in providing care to grieving parents. I will feel more confident and comfortable participating in the provision of bereavement care in y practice as a result of the course.
  • Can disseminate knowledge learned during this course to colleagues to improve overall bereavement care throughout our unit.
