Some Dorset primary care business support and reception staff recently road-tested this training and said:
“It definitely opened my eyes and I think it allows staff to have the confidence to speak to patients that have experienced bereavement.”
“It also helped them to recognise when they, themselves may have been affected by a story and where, when, and how to get help for this. It showed them that it is okay to be affected by a story but to recognise this and to get help if needed”
“This course Confirmed that what I have been doing is the right thing, I now feel more confident in providing support to the bereaved.”
“It has given me more understanding of bereavement especially the models explained.”
“Even though I work a lot with bereavement, I learned things I didn’t know and was reminded of things I’d forgotten.”
“I feel more confident now in listening and being able to provide support to the bereaved.”
