    Helping people to remember - Memorialisation
    This booklet aims to encourage hospices, hospitals and care homes which are supporting people at the end of life and families into bereavement, to think about how both formal and informal opportunities to remember those who have died under their care can be part of the meaning-seeking and meaningtaking processes.

    Care After Death: Guidance for staff responsible for care after death (second edition)
    First published in 2011, the 'Guidance for staff responsible for care after death' showed that care after death is the first stage of a process which involves a range of professional groups and that coordinated working is vital if the process is to run smoothly. Endorsed by three royal colleges and other national organisations, the focus of the second edition has been extended to include recommendations relating to the training of staff and to addressing deaths in mental health services and prisons. Author: Jo Wilson on behalf of National Nurse Consultant Group (Palliative Care).
