1. Do you feel the NHS should be involved in supporting those who
have been bereaved:
a) Immediately after the death?
Through the early days of grief (say first week?)
Until the bereaved person feels ready to move on?
2. Do you feel that implementing the Shaping Bereavement Care Framework will help ensure that:
Boards are more aware of how good planning of the relatives'/ carers' experience around the time of death and can contribute to better outcomes in their grief;
Staff are better equipped to support bereaved people and will be better supported themselves in their responses to death and grief; and
Bereaved people will feel more supported at, during and following a death and that their wishes, and the wishes of the person who has died, have been taken into consideration.
Do you agree with the recommendations set out in the Shaping
Bereavement Care Framework document (pages 4-6)?
Please provide comments if you disagree with the recommendations or feel that there are some missing.
