Abstract:

Families whose infants die in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) may be asked about autopsy, organ donation, and research tissue donation. Understanding how parents experience these often difficult but important conversations is crucial information for healthcare teams. This presentation provides the results of research that looked at the perspectives of parents who had experienced neonatal loss. Make a lasting difference to the families in your care by learning more about how to approach the conversation of autopsy, organ donation, and tissue donation for research in a way that is parent centered.

Abstract:

In this presentation, we will explore grief and baby loss from a first-world, Western perspective. We will reflect on how our attitudes to grief have formed and look at the differences between traditional and contemporary approaches to grief and the tension that lies between them. We will also discuss some of the different ways that baby loss is discussed societally – looking particularly at platitudes, euphemisms and the tendency to minimize a baby’s death. We’ll finish with an exploration of our own approach to supporting bereaved families - our philosophy of care. At the end of this presentation, participants will have an array of concepts to help reflect on the care they give to parents and families who have experienced the tragedy of neonatal death.
