Death of a Child During the Pandemic: A Research Study




Purpose of the Study

We would like to understand family experiences and the types of support families needed that helped them prepare for the death of their child, as well as cope with grief and loss during their bereavement during the social isolation of a pandemic.

By understanding families’ experiences, it will help us develop ways to help families to better cope with grief brought about by limited social interaction and opportunities for coping both now and in the future.
