Translating Knowledge Into Practice: 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. With speakers such as Melissa Cole, Barbara Robertson, Jacquline Kincer and Karolina Ocha along with topics such as Breastfeeding Families and Complicated Mastitis, Walking with NICU Families Through Their Infant Feeding Journey, Care Plan Design for Treating Infant Oral Dysfunction and much more, this package is not to be missed!

Essential Communication Skills for Lactation Professionals Lecture Pack:

Communication skills are of critical importance in health care, and they are called “skills” for a reason. Communication techniques can be learned and practiced to help improve your ability to communicate effectively with both clients and colleagues. This package has been put together with the new IBLCE requirements for communication skills in mind and provides focused education on communication skills for lactation and other healthcare professionals. Join speakers Cynthia Good, Elly Taylor, Tanya Singleton, Shu-Fang Wang and Lesley Everest to learn more about the hidden dynamics in our communication with clients, communication and conflict, conflict resolution within the extended family, CALM communication and so much more!

Lactation and Adversity: Addressing Challenges with Confidence Lecture Pack:

Lactation professionals are well versed in supporting infant feeding in the context of clinical techniques for improving latch and positioning, increasing milk production etc. It is crucial for care providers to also know how to respond when infant feeding issues are complicated by other factors. How do we help in the face of parental trauma, gender dysphoria, past abuse, homelessness, nursing aversion or other psychosocial or physical challenges? These situations can be difficult for a client to feel safe expressing and require a higher level of clinical skill for the practitioner. This package was designed to provide an in-depth look at some of these situations so that care providers are able to approach them with more skill and confidence. Join expert speakers such as Kimberly Moore-Salas, Nikki Lee, Anna Brauch, and Zainab Yate to hear presentations such as Supporting Dyads Facing Past Trauma and Gender Dysphoria, Palliative Care: Why and How to Provide Lactation Support During Serious Illness or Before an Anticipated Death, The Power of Storytelling: A Tool for Addressing Historical Trauma and Breastfeeding and much more!
