Home > Bereavement Research into Practice

New developments in bereavement research are expanding our understanding of what it means to be bereaved and what can help in times of grief. Researchers, practitioners and policymakers need to share insights and generate ideas together to make sure that research informs practice, and that practice helps identify the next generation of research questions.

We hold Bereavement Research into Practice meetings to bring these groups together. Read the agendas for our last few meetings:

  • October 2018: Exploring the experiences of older people bereaved of a partner; Hearing from solo dads
  • March 2018: Helping carers identify the support they need; Memory clinics role in identifying and supporting bereaved carers; the bereavement experiences of LGBT people bereaved of a partner; assessing and evaluating pre-bereavement support for children.

Members of the National Bereavement Alliance will receive BRF updates and notices of future meetings as part of their membership. If you are not already a member, you can join the Alliance here.
