PARAMEDICS Grief training to improve your practice
What do I say to a family member in distress? How do I deal with a family who is resisting my clinical advice? What is there to learn when a call didn’t go as I’d hoped? How do I tell an unprepared family that death is imminent? Paramedicine is evolving to provide palliative care in the home. Paramedics and grief experts collaborated to develop MyGriefToolbox.ca to help you deliver the care that matters at the most difficult time of life.
