This Toolkit is part of the CYGN’s ongoing evidence-based knowledge translation initiatives. Our inaugural Children’s Grief Awareness Family Day was launched in November 2017 and was born out of the expertise of our network partners, in response to the needs of local parents and families and our research findings on the value of peer support and access to local services.
Recognizing our limited capacity as a grassroots organization, we wanted to create a toolkit so that other groups can organize and implement a Family Day in their own region. We have designed this toolkit and the associated materials so that you can customize the program to meet the needs of your community. It can be used by practitioners in palliative care and grief, mental health, education, and healthcare -- effectively any space where you encounter children, youth and families that are grieving death or dying.
As someone who has requested this toolkit, the CYGN will support your efforts by helping you source additional expertise and resources and plan and evaluate your Family Day. Together, we will increase the impact of programs and services for grieving families. Spread across six modules, this toolkit includes helpful tips for your planning process, and links to various templates (i.e. emails, agendas, save-the-dates, media release forms, activities, social media posts, evaluation forms, and thank you cards). We’ve got everything you need to host your own Family Day. We are also available to help support your event by providing expert speakers and clinicians if they are needed.
As a recipient of this toolkit, you and your organization will have access to review and use all of the information, tips, lists and templates it encompasses. In return, we have asked that you agree to the following items. We also ask that you complete a survey after your event to help use determine the impact and effectiveness of the Toolkit resource.
