Background

In 2016, The Contra Costa Fetal Infant Mortality Review (FIMR) program recognized a need to provide consistent and seamless care to families who experienced a fetal or infant loss at Contra Costa Regional Medical Center and health clinics. An interdisciplinary perinatal bereavment task force was established to improve the quality of care for patients and their families facing problems associated with perinatal illness and loss. The task force seeks to mitigate suffering by incorporating best practice guidelines such as the use of early assessments and treatment plans for physical and psychosocial problems associated with the loss of a baby.

Training Description

Contra Costa Health Services is utilizing the Resolve Through Sharing (RTS) Bereavement Training: Perinatal Death model developed by Gunderson Health System in 1981. RTS is a comprehensive 2-day training known world-wide as the "Gold Standard" in perinatal bereavement education, and is referenced as the only educational offering available to help prepare for the Hospice & Palliative Credentialing Center's perinatal loss care certification exam (CPLC).

Training Focus

Attendance at this training will serve to enhance your knowledge, level of skill, and personal awareness when providing care to families whose baby dies. Focus is on perinatal death through miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth, and newborn death.

Target Audience

This course is intended for: Nurses, physicians, social workers (all levels of practice), public health nurses, home health workers, chaplains, midwives, genetic counselors, physician assistants, child life specialists, ultrasonographers, funeral directors.
