This e-learning course aims to develop awareness, knowledge and understanding of the importance of providing parent-led, sensitive and empathic care for parents whose baby dies before, during or shortly after birth. It will focus specifically on losses from late miscarriage to 28 days of life. It is not intended to replace face-to-face training which facilitates the development of skills in this important area of care.
The National Bereavement Care Pathway (NBCP) Elearning module has been developed by a collaboration of charities, professional organisations and people with first-hand experience to improve bereavement care after miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, molar pregnancy, termination of pregnancy after prenatal diagnosis, stillbirth, neonatal death and sudden unexpected death in infancy.
