RN, RM, BN, DipTh and AIMM.
Jacquie Bambery is a registered nurse and midwife with a post-registration Bachelor of Nursing from Deakin University in Geelong, Australia. At the time this chapter was written, she was in her last semester of a Bachelor of Education at La Trobe University in Melbourne and was also undertaking a Diploma of Freelance Journalism through the Australian College of Journalism in Sydney. The holder of a Diploma of Theology, she claims no religious affiliation but has a long-standing interest in the spirituality of all people and finds the teaching of Tibetan Buddhism dynamic and relevant. Jacquie's background is diverse and includes a number of years on the Spinal Injuries Unit at Austin Hospital in Melbourne where she also set up the first School of Post-Basic Nursing Education. She has both teaching and management experience and is a member of the Australian Institute of Management. Jacquie has also worked in Northern India, running a mobile tuberculosis clinic in the Himalayan foothills. She is currently in private practice which includes community-based pastoral care and a counselling service. She is writing a book, which she hopes will be accepted for publication, about grief and bereavement being a community experience and therefore a community responsibility.
