Description

Nurses are looking beyond parents to provide bereavement support for the wider family

Nurse consultant Michael Tatterton’s research revealed that when a child with a life-limiting condition dies, the grandparents’ ‘unique footprint of grief’ is often overlooked. The hospice where he conducted his PhD study has changed how it supports grandparents to reduce their isolation and allow them to grieve.
