Translated resource booklet launched

A set of four new translations for the ‘When a Relative or Friend Dies in Hospital’ booklet has been launched across the district.

The booklet provides valuable information to assist families and loved ones who may know someone who has passed away in hospital.

The translations of the bereavement booklet, which will now be available in simplified Chinese, Armenian, Italian and Korean, provides targeted information to culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) patients and consumers to ensure there is equitable access to the valuable information.

Royal North Shore Hospital Bereavement Coordinator Teresa Tyacke said the booklets will also help to alleviate some of the stress and confusion for CALD families and loved ones.  

“Having a loved one die in hospital can be a distressing and overwhelming time and information on what to do next and where to get support if needed can be very helpful,” she said.

The translated booklets were an initiative of the RNSH social work department and have been funded by the Tomorrow Trust.
