' When a child dies'; the development of a collaborative education programme to enhance care and support

Nurse leaders within the Clinical Simulation Centre (CSC) at Great Ormond Street Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (GOSH) developed an education programme in collaboration with Bereavement, Chaplaincy, Mortuary and Palliative Care services. This aided staff in developing their skills in caring for a dying child and supporting families through this critical time. The programme aims to improve the quality of care provided to families and ensure signposting to further services to meet their needs.
