Course presentation

In the field of health we live many processes of illness, loss and death, either accompanying patients and their families, or in a personal and intimate way.

In the face of a loss, how do we support those who suffer? What strategies do we have for sitting on a patient's headboard? How can we accompany the family? What feelings does it generate in us?

This course aims to give an overview of what a loss is, what grief is, and how we can accompany the patient and his family. The experience of grief, loss and death according to the evolutionary stage will also be worked on and support strategies will be provided for families, as well as resources for health personnel, to accompany and accompany them throughout the process.
