Chapter 1: Grief responses to suffering and death

In summary

Your responses to work-related grief will vary over time and with different circumstances. You may be surprised or even caught off guard at times by the intensity of your response -- or by the lack of it. 

Remember that your work is by nature intense and demanding, and take time to acknowledge your efforts and contributions, not only as a paramedic but also as a human being.

In the remainder of this module and in Module 8, Opportunities for personal growth, you'll find strategies to help you manage work-related grief.
