I am starting a bereavement committee in my PICU and I am wondering if there are any suggestions. We currently have bereavement information and binders for the families. We do clay molds and fingerprints, as well. We are going to start sending sympathy cards and having semi-formal debriefings every so often outside the hospial. But, that's it. I know there is so much we can add and do for our families and I want to do everything we can.
The other question is...how to go about getting funding? I am sure our hospital is not going to support many of the things we want to do - at least right away - so how do I go about getting charities and other organizations involved? I am so new to all of this - but, I want to learn and I want to do more.
Thanks so much!!!
