Event description

Description

Many parents who have experienced the loss of a baby during or post pregnancy or have been advised their baby will have a disability often feel unsupported in their decision-making and in respect of the journey to come and follow on care.

This event aims to raise awareness of the impact of professional decisions and approach for parents who receive different or difficult news that their baby will have a learning or other disability, the impact on the child and the family and a health professional’s role in delivering unexpected news.

This seminar is aimed at all professionals working with pregnant women and new parents (sonographers, midwives, obstetricians, health visitors, learning disability nurses, GPs, practice nurses, healthcare assistants), on the impact of giving or being part of responding to ‘different’ or ‘difficult’ news.

It will aim to promote an understanding of the impact of not only the information, but also that of how the information is given (facial expressions, words and reaction) in giving different news, and the lasting effect this can have.

We anticipate these seminars will promote intense discussion, encourage sharing of experiences, the importance of information and networks to help make informed choices and sharing of good practice examples.

Individual parent and child experiences will be shared to support change in thinking and practice.

This is a similar event to 'Giving Different or Difficult News' event being held in Birmingham on 14th March. Any questions or queries please contact judy.walker@phe.gov.uk
