The death of a child is an extremely sensitive issue -- one that requires nurses and other health professionals to be confident in helping families cope with loss and bereavement. This insightful text provides techniques and skills for supporting family members, listening, and offering appropriate assistance.
I enjoyed reviewing this immensely interesting and thought-provoking textbook that covers a wide range of issues related to sudden death and family bereavement... Its primary audience is nurses and midwives although it will also be of interest to a range of health and social professionals including educators, GPs, teachers, and social workers... I thoroughly recommend this book as essential reading to all those who may become involved in supporting bereaved families following sudden death.John Costello, University of Manchester, UKMortality, Vol. 11, No.1, February 2006
