Description

The purpose of this study was to investigate the needs of bereaved parents in Greece (N = 56) regarding the provision of hospital based bereavement services after the death of their child to cancer. The participants did not receive formal or informal hospital based bereavement services. The majority of the parents (84%) stated that, given the opportunity, they would attend a bereavement program. Continuity of care in bereavement from the health care team, availability, individualized care, interdisciplinary approach and contact with other bereaved parents were described as key elements for the provision of bereavement services.
