We're pleased to have been part of judging and presenting the Excellence in Bereavement Care Award as part of the 2018 ACM (Australian College of Midwives) Awards.
This year is the first that the Excellence in Bereavement Care Award has been presented, recognising the growing importance of health professionals having skills and experience in this crucial area.
At a gala dinner at Crown Towers in Southbank on Friday 20 July, our General Manager Improving Bereavement Care, Anita Guyett, presented this Sands-sponsored award to Eliza Strauss, a bereavement midwife at Frances Perry House in recognition of her expertise in caring for women and their families who've experienced the death of a baby.
We congratulate Eliza for her commitment to supporting bereaved parents in her midwifery practice. We know what a difference good bereavement care makes at this exceptionally difficult time in helping people through the trauma of their loss.
