Bereavement Care Modules

A package of seven bereavement e-learning courses developed by CRUSE Bereavement Care is available through the LearnPro platform. The courses aim to increase knowledge and understanding of the key issues related to bereavement in the general healthcare setting, and range from essential information for all staff (clinical and non-clinical, registered and non-registered) through to specialist modules for those who are regularly working with dying or bereaved individuals, children and young people, or supporting bereaved staff in a management capacity.
