Perinatal and Pediatric Bereavement in Nursing and Other Health Professions (Paperback)
about this item
This is a definitive, state-of-the-art resource for professionals who provide bereavement care to families when a baby or older child dies.. Culling the most important new evidence from scholars and practitioners worldwide, it links theoretical knowledge and clinical practice recommendations to fill a gap in the current literature. The text is distinguished by its provision of different and even competing perspectives that address the complexities of the tragic human experience of perinatal and pediatric death. Expert contributors from the fields of nursing and other health professions disseminate new theoretical approaches and reexamine current concepts in light of new research. They discuss the theoretical underpinnings of perinatal and pediatric bereavement, examine current thought on the dimensions of loss, deliver evidence-based clinical interventions, and offer the perspective of grieving families in regard to their experiences and needs.
