This episode is part one of a two-part discussion about grief.

Divorce, career change, loss of a child or parent, or loss of a colleague are all experiences that can lead to grief. People experience grief differently, and it can be particularly challenging for people working in healthcare.

Lizzie Pickering is a grief investigator. Lizzie's work is based on being alongside grieving parents at the children's hospice world, setting up peer-to-peer support and navigating her own grief following the death of her son, Harry 20 years ago.

In this first part of our conversation, Lizzie explains the stages of grief and shares some practical tips on how to talk about grief with patients, families and colleagues.
