Compassionate Care Workshop – Hamilton
October 24 @ 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
An open invitation to a FREE one day educational session for professionals who provide care, services, or support to bereaved parents and families during the loss of their pregnancy or infant.
Our Compassionate Care Workshop is a full day training session (8 hours) for people who provide professional care or services to families who may experience a pregnancy loss or the death of their baby. The day covers many topics including grief, memory making, cultural safety, what to say/what not to say, pregnancy after loss, and family-centred care. We also aim to have a family panel in which families come and speak of their lived experience of loss.
Co-Hosted by: St. Joseph’s Healthcare – Women’s Health Concerns Clinic & McMaster University Medical Centre – Women’s Reproductive Health & Newborn Care
