Brain Banking bereavement workshop

The Medical Research Council will work with Brains for Dementia Research to hold another training day for around 50 brain bank workers. 

The planned workshop will cover bereavement and loss in relation to brain banking, specifically describing emotional support mechanisms for brain bank staff working with bereaved families.  The workshop will focus on strategies for coping with carers and client’s feelings when having to decline brain donations and how to communicate this effectively. It is particularly suited for brain bank staff and anyone who takes consent for brain tissue donation. 

Workshop report to follow.
