Ted Talks Palliative Hub

Ted Talks are available on the All Ireland Institute of Hospice & Palliative Care Hub specifically relating to palliative and end of life care.

TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues.

Standards for Supporting Bereaved Children and Young People

ICBN.JPG

The ICBN has developed Standards for Supporting Bereaved Children and Young People contained in this document.

The ICBN intends this document to be used by all adults, professionals, volunteer organisations and policy makers who are concerned about bereaved children. The appropriate standard of care and support should be provided to children so that their
bereavement needs can be met regardless of their religion, culture, gender or economic status or their location within Ireland. The ICBN sees these standards being used for planning, provision, and quality review of childhood bereavement care.
