Helping to close the gaps in bereavement care for oncology nurses: the role of online resources and information

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

Introduction • Cancer nurses work to support carers and families during cancer diagnosis and treatment, and may also need to provide support in dealing with anticipatory grief when families realise that the journey is coming to an end. • Bereavement support often continues after the patient has died: when relatives return to see ward staff; or in attending memorial services or other rituals. • Nurses will also often refer patients and families (or colleagues) to relevant information in relation to supporting the bereaved, however finding evidence based resources can be challenging.
