- 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.
