Verification of expected death during COVID-19 with remote clinical support

The Coronavirus Act 2020 makes special arrangements for verifying an expected death (VOED) with clinical remote support in a community setting, such as care homes, supported living accommodation or when a person receives care in their own home. This webinar will support non-medical people to prepare for VOED during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Duration 27 mins 29 secs



Managing bereavement

This webinar focuses on bereavement and the experience of losing a colleague or a person you are caring for. It follows on from the previous webinar ‘End of life care.’ Bereavement is the experience of losing someone important to us and is characterised by grief, which is the process and the range of emotions we go through as we gradually adjust to the loss. Claire Henry, MBE and colleagues from Skills for Care discuss what bereavement in the workplace setting means and how we can support you including support to help you move forward.

Duration 27mins 43 secs

This webinar will explore advance care planning, care in the final days and care after death. Supported by Hospice UK and Dying Matters
