Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the RCSI MSc Loss & Bereavement and MSc Loss & Bereavement (Counselling) in conjunction with IHF will be delivered online via Zoom for the upcoming academic year. The course commences in December and applications close on Nov 16th.
This post-graduate course aims to promote critical inquiry into the place of loss, death and bereavement in Irish society and in health and social care systems. Through this process, the goal is to equip practitioners and managers to promote and provide a range of appropriate supports in their communities, work places and professional practices.

CEO of IHF Sharon Foley commented:
“2020 is a year which has presented many challenges to our health, mental health and social services due to the sudden Covid-19 pandemic and resulting restrictions. At Irish Hospice Foundation, our concern is with those facing death and those who are left behind – people who are bereaved.
With respect to bereavement, we are anxious to ensure that our systems are prepared to support and to provide the expert care that will be required in the months and years to come.
To this end the RCSI MSc Loss & Bereavement (Counselling) and the MSc Loss & Bereavement programmes run in association with IHF have been converted to online programmes to begin this December.
These programmes are aimed at two cohorts; one programme is for counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists who work directly with clients; the second programme aims to equip others to develop bereavement care services and pathways in their locality or service”
