Knowledge Translation: Creating Effective Lactation Care Plans Lecture Pack (6 Hours)

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.

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.Offering 6 hours of continuing education, this add-on lecture pack is approved for 6 L-CERPs, 6 CMEs, 6 Nurse Contact Hours, 6 Contact Hours (0.6 MEAC CEUs) & 6 Dietetic CPEUs.
