Event description

Description

Explore the impact that the death of a twin (or multiple) can have on a family, drawing on current research and learning from the neonatal butterfly project. This workshop will increase and embed the knowledge and understanding of professionals, to ensure a high quality of care and support for parents in the future.

Learning outcomes

  • gain an understanding of what parents may need when they are faced with the death of their twin(or multiple)
  • explore and develop self-awareness in relation to loss, grief and bereavement
  • recognise physical and emotional reactions to grief
  • be aware of current guidelines, research and initiatives around the death of a twin, and baby loss in general
  • consider the way we communicate and support families following the death of a twin
  • explore and consider ways to support ourselves and our colleagues
  • gain information about Child Bereavement UK and other support organisations and resources available

Who should attend?

This is a workshop for all of those whose work brings them into contact with families grieving the loss of a twin. This workshop is suitable for midwives, neonatal nurses, neonatologists, obstetricians, sonographers, and any healthcare professional working within a delivery suite, maternity or neonatal unit.

We encourage prospective participants to consider their own experience of loss and how it might affect them during training. Generally speaking, our training is not usually suited to anyone who has suffered a recent, significant personal loss or bereavement.
