Knowledge Translation: Creating Effective Lactation Care Plans Lecture Pack

A lactation care plan serves several purposes. It provides the client with reminders about what was discussed during the visit with their care provider, what steps they should be following at home and when to follow up. For the care provider, the care plan helps to document care and also serves as a means to encourage collaboration and continuity of care. In short, an effective care plan is an essential tool for lactation professionals.

This package provides a focused look at common clinical situations and each presentation provides a detailed look at how to put a plan in place, when to follow up and how to adjust the care plan as things evolve.
