Agenda: Google Classroom (independent online modules) + afternoon Zoom session.
Target audience: This workshop is intended for all practitioners involved in the care of mothers and newborns in the community.
This workshop provides a solid foundation of theoretical and clinical knowledge to facilitate effective care of families experiencing a perinatal loss. This workshop also addresses the potential effects of perinatal loss on practitioners as a result of caring for bereaved families. When possible, a parent with lived experience will provide a guest presentation.
This workshop will be offered in a blended learning format and consists of 2 parts:
- Online modules (using Google Classroom) to be completed independently prior to the Workshop. Estimated time 3-4 hours.
- Participation in an interactive Zoom videoconference session during the afternoon of the Workshop. Estimated time 3-4 hours.
All online modules must be completed prior to the afternoon Zoom session.
- Describe different types of perinatal losses and outline the grief process.
- Explore the significance of perinatal loss in the lives of childbearing families.
- Discuss the role of care providers including specific interventions to support bereaved families.
- Identify the challenges associated with providing support to bereaved families.
- Identify self-care strategies for care providers and other members of the health care team who are affected by loss.
Further information on how to access online modules (Google Classroom) and the Zoom videoconference link will be shared prior to the Workshop.
