"Practical, evidence-based, patient- and family-centered, personally and professionally meaningful." That’s what our participants tell us they value about their RTS education.
Founded in 1981, Resolve Through Sharing (RTS) Bereavement Training: Perinatal Death is a comprehensive 2-day training known world-wide as the "Gold Standard" in perinatal bereavement education.
The curriculum is modified regularly to reflect the latest in research, innovations in practice, and updated systems. The recent updates provide the same well known features our participants expect: new video clips and PowerPoint, additional small- and large-group discussions, opportunities for skill building, and an increased emphasis on caring for yourself—all facilitated by top-notch faculty. The new format also includes a blended learning approach.
*Resolve Through Sharing (RTS) Bereavement Training: Perinatal Death and RTS Coordinator Training help you comply with The Joint Commission standard for end-of-life care PC.02.02.13.
