HSC Bereavement Network

The quality of care and support received around the time of death and afterwards can impact on the grieving of bereaved people. The HSC Bereavement Network site supports staff/volunteers in statutory, private and voluntary/community sectors working in this field as they seek to enhance their awareness, knowledge and practice.

The site includes:

  • Care of the deceased patient and their family: A Guideline for Nursing Practice in Northern Ireland (HSC Bereavement Network, 2017)
  • The Donaldson Report (2014)
  • Breaking Bad News. Regional Guidelines (DHSSPS, 2003)
  • Guidelines for Palliative and End of Life Care in Nursing and Residential Homes (GAIN 2013)
  • Memorandum of Understanding Investigating Patient or Client Safety Incidents (DHSSPS, hseni, Courts & Tribunals Service NI, 2013)
  • Working with the Coroners Service for Northern Ireland (Courts & Tribunals Service)
