Evidence-based perinatal bereavement care guidelines aim to ensure all parents receive the best possible care when a baby dies before or soon after birth. This project aims to develop a parent version of the Perinatal Society of Australia and New Zealand/Stillbirth Centre of Research Excellence Clinical Practice Guideline for Respectful and Supportive Perinatal Bereavement Care . The parent version will complement the clinical practice guideline and will be developed in close collaboration with parents to ensure it contains relevant and usable information in an appropriate form. We will follow established processes set out by the Guidelines International Network, including multistage consultation and co-design. Sits here on the current website:
