At Sands we understand that bereavement is one of the most challenging areas of practice in many professions.  We also know that quality bereavement care is essential for the wellbeing of families in both the short and long term.

Sands training workshops are designed to support any professional working with families who have experienced the death of a baby. Our expert trainers have extensive experience of bereavement care and so can work closely with delegates as they develop knowledge and skills.

Our workshops are interactive and include the following modules:

  • The family’s experience of pregnancy, birth and death
  • Effective communication skills
  • Grief, loss and trauma awareness
  • Enabling informed choice
  • Implementing the National Bereavement Care Pathway
  • Pregnancy following loss
  • Support and resources for staff

Sands workshops are accredited by the Royal College of Midwives and the Institute of Health Visiting, therefore can be used CDP for revalidation purposes.
