Training: Accompanying Parents When A Baby Dies

06/05/2019 04:00 PM - 08:00 PM ET


Participants in this course will review best practices for caring for a family at the time of a baby’s death. We will explore the specifics regarding why these practices can be important to each individual family and explore how to present options to parents which empower them to complete developmental tasks of parenting.

Participants will also practice ways to assess and acknowledge a family’s social and cultural background and will learn how to use this information to make meaning with the family at the time of loss. Lastly, nurses will gather skills for debrief and self-care so that they can learn from, rather than feel negatively affected by, caring for the bereaved.

This training will be held June 5th from 4:00pm to 8:00pm at Holyoke Medical Center's Auxillary Conference Center: 20 Hospital Drive in Holyoke MA.

Nurses will receive 4 credit hours. Participants are invited to stay until 8:30pm (for an additional .5 credit hour) for a short training in supporting perinatal loss families during subsequent pregnancies.
