Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We are learning about the meaning of the death of an infant, and its impact on the family. We are becoming aware that by being there, health care staff become important in how the life-long process of grieving will get started. Educational and supportive practices for staff and programs for bereaved family members that set the stage for healthy grieving are difficult but valuable in the work of neonatal intensive care.
