Sands (Still & Neonatal Death Charity) has worked with the Institute of Health Visiting to create a one-day bereavement care workshop for health visitors. The training workshop is fully iHV accredited.
Aim of the workshop
To enable health visitors to develop the knowledge, insight and skills to provide effective care and support to families who experience the death of a baby, before, during or shortly after birth.
About the workshop
Each workshop is run by a skilled facilitator who uses film, audio clips, presentation, discussion, reflection and group exercises to enable participants to develop the knowledge, insight and skills to provide high quality, sensitive care to parents whose baby dies, either before, during or shortly after birth.

Feedback from previous training:
“Extremely good training day! Everything was important to my practice and I feel better equipped to deal/care for bereaved families. Thank you (every health visitor should do this training day).”
“This was a really great workshop that should be included as mandatory training. Every parent has the right to be supported through their loss and have the opportunity to talk about their experiences.”
