Abstract
This project seeks to develop a comprehensive bereavement care pilot program at Baylor University Medical Center, Dallas, Texas. The practicum was conducted from October 21, 2010, to October 21, 2011. Pre-test surveys showed the hospital does well in caring for grieving families at the time of death. However, a desire for more initiatives in the pre- and post-bereavement phase was indicated. This project has identified initiatives that ban be helpful to hospitals desiring to create bereavement programs for grieving families and staff.
