One of your patient's family members has passed away and your patient just found out that. To assist them with their grieving process, what is the best way?
Spend some time with your patient and offer your support, especially if they feel like talking to you about the situation.
Your patient are likely to feeling more comfortable to talk to you about what they are feeling when you sit and listen to them. The other options would more than likely make your patient feel like you are discounting their feelings of sadness and despair.
