Abstract

This paper is in two parts and is based on research conducted with bereaved parents following perinatal death. For me, this is meeting a different need as the focus is not so much on palliative care later on in life but at the beginning of life. Second it is based on student nurses and nurses experiences of caring for the dying, the corpse and bereaved families following perinatal death.

I am doing it this way, because in teaching our own nursing students, working with colleagues in the NHS and hospices and previous experience of teaching medical students, death, dying and bereavement is not always talked about and relatively little is known about professional experiences or of the impact of this work, and how this affects the care provided.
