The Academy of Fabulous Stuff and the IHM, in collaboration with IMS MAXIMS, has published an updated guide to bereavement, to mark Dying Matters Awareness Week. It is aimed at helping everyone who comes into contact with bereaved relatives, carers and friends to understand what is required of them and the organisations they work in.
Bereavement can be a harrowing experience for relatives and staff to managers and organisations. Providing good end of life care is a skill that requires exceptional attention to detail and vocation. Managing these vital services is a challenge.
This guide, updated by Jules Lewis, Jules Lock and original author Roy Lilley, provides a straightforward guide for practitioners to give them the best chance of providing good care at the end of someone’s life.
As author Roy Lilley notes, we only get one chance to get this right.
