National Networks and Policies

National networks and policies help those working in bereavement and loss to standardise and optimise the care they provide to grieving people.
Ireland does not have a national strategy for end-of-life or bereavement care. However, a number of national networks have developed among organisations focusing on bereavement related issues.
