Access to Bereavement Services

Ciarde and the Bereavement Team of Temple St. Children’s University Hospital met on the 3rd of March to discuss how to increase cultural appropriateness and accessibility of hospital’s Bereavement Services to various ethnic minorities using the service.

After consulting with the Cairde’s Ethnic Minority Health Forum members, our clients and embassies Cairde gave feedback on the present hospital’s booklet on grief and grieving. Cairde also presented on how different ethnic and national communities deal with the loss of a child. African, Chinese, Polish and Roma perspectives were discussed. Recommendations were also given.
