Bereavement Training and Education

Understanding grief is a core competence for all those working in health professions. To this end, the Irish Hospice Foundation offers bereavement education and training at multiple levels. Training ranges from introductory e-learning (for all), to workshops on specific topics for people whose work or volunteering brings them into regular contact with bereaved people.
In addition, postgraduate courses, such as the MSc in Bereavement Studies, and professional therapy, including complicated grief training, are available for the few who develop a more specialist interest in planning or providing bereavement support.
