Description

The World Health Organization suggests that palliative care needs to offer a support system to the family during the patient's illness as well as during his/her bereavement. Bereavement follow-up services in paediatrics offer families an additional source of support in their grieving process. This article reviews the development of a bereavement follow-up programme delivered by the paediatric palliative care team and explores the lessons learnt and challenges faced in developing the programme.
