About the Workshop
A baby dies…….
A miscarriage occurs......
Medical treatment is withdrawn on a baby in NICU.....
No fetal heartbeat is found on ultrasound......
A medical termination takes place......
As a professional, do you know how to react? Do you know what to say?
RTS Bereavement Support Education will help you learn the skills based on grief theory to help grieving families in all these situations and will provide knowledge and guidance to hospitals that will assist them in meeting the current accreditation standards related to palliative and bereavement care.
The RTS Perinatal Bereavement Education Program combines insight, knowledge and hands-on practical experience with the skills necessary to interact with families experiencing perinatal loss at all gestations, with special validation of early loss issues.
The program was developed through the Gunderson Lutheran Medical Foundation in Wisconsin and is now taught worldwide. It is taught by trained RTS Bereavement Services Coordinators through Pregnancy & Infant Loss Network (PAIL) - formerly known as Perinatal Bereavement Services Ontario (PBSO).
This 2 day course is open to all health care professionals and is of specific interest to nurses, physicians, ultrasound technicians, social workers in Labour and Delivery, NICU, Post Partum, ED and Day Surgery. More examples include staff from reproductive technology clinics, gynecological nurses, public health nurses, midwives, doulas, chaplains, clergy, medical clinic office workers and funeral directors.
