A whole day seminar targeted at Neonatal Grid and Neonatal SPIN paediatric trainees, delivering challenging but necessary communication skills training at a level appropriate to a very senior group of learners who will often use these skills in their future professional roles.

Every candidate will undertake a realistic face-to-face bereavement scenario with 2 actors, supported by expert faculty in each small group. This is the gold standard for building experience and expertise in breaking the worst news of all, in a safe learning environment.

The plenary sessions will deliver the specific knowledge, skills and attitudes to effectively communicate with bereaved families:

  • Interactive case based discussions exploring real life case scenarios eg: extreme prematurity, sick term babies etc.
  • Parent experience
  • Ethics around decision making
  • Palliative care service
  • Practitioner Wellbeing

The course will be delivered in the beautiful setting of Churchill College, in one of Cambridge’s finest conference settings, with plenty of parking! The faculty bring tertiary neonatal expertise; cutting-edge communication skills teaching know how; and vast experience with the delivery of the knowledge necessary to underpin communication in this challenging field.

The previous three iterations of the CU/CKF Bereavement Seminar received stellar feedback, and we aim to make this neonatal-focused seminar the gold standard for national neonatal training. It’s a tough and emotional day, but the practitioner well-being session will help to rebuild everybody present – and the lunch will be tremendous.

Only 15 places are available for candidates at this seminar, so please register as soon as possible to secure your place.
