The Bereavement Team

The bereavement team should include representatives from nursing, medical staff, chaplaincy, social services, human resources, the employee assistance program (EAP), palliative care (experts in group facilitation and grief), and the organization's wellness committee. (See Bereavement team members.) A mental health professional (bereavement team therapist) leads counseling efforts and coordinates communication.
