Each year, nearly 1 million babies in the United States die as a result of miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth or newborn death. Do nurses, physicians, social workers, chaplains and other caregivers know what to do or say to support grieving families?
Healthcare professionals have an opportunity to enhance their knowledge and skill level while increasing their personal awareness in the field of perinatal bereavement care by attending Resolve Through Sharing (RTS) Bereavement Training in Perinatal Death and RTS Coordinator Training. The training will be held at Advocate Condell Medical Center, 801 S. Milwaukee Ave., on April 24-26, 2013.
The RTS Bereavement Training in Perinatal Death course reflects the latest in research, innovations in practice and updated systems. More than 35,000 healthcare professionals worldwide have attended the training.
