    We have been trying to improve bereavement follow up for families and would appreciate some feedback from you on your process.

    Do you have a formal bereavement support program for families? If so, who coordinates it?

    Are families contacted to see how they are doing? If so, how often does this happen and for how long after the child’s death?

    Are support services offered to staff also? If so, what is offered?
    Thanks in advance,
