  • CONF 2016 Skin to Skin Care Decreases Procedural Pain for Newborns

    Contains 3 Component(s), 1.00 credit offered

    In this compelling session, the speakers identify the negative consequences of newborn exposure to numerous painful procedures after delivery and discuss how parent-provided skin-to-skin care can decrease procedural pain in newborns no matter how they are fed. They present the results of the pilot study they conducted at a Baby Friendly designated hospital in the United States. The session describes how they used a PICO question (Problem or Population, Intervention, Comparison, Outcomes) to encourage their facility to question its current practices, examine the evidence, and change to engaging in evidence-based practice to reduce newborn pain. The PICO question was “For newborns born at more than 37 weeks gestation, does the use of skin-to-skin care reduce procedural pain?” The study showed a significant reduction of procedural pain in newborns receiving skin-to-skin care.

  • CONF 2016 The Affective Needs of Children: Crying and the Need for Comforting

    Contains 3 Component(s), 1.00 credit offered

    In this humorous but evidence-based session, Dr. Carlos González, offers a delightful, basic review of why human infants need to be near their mothers/caregivers, and why carrying and keeping infants near, even during sleep, is a developmentally appropriate response to the innate proximity-seeking behaviors exhibited by all infants. He explains from a biological and anthropological perspective why infant separation is not normal for human survival. In the words of the speaker, “Children all over the world, just like the offspring of many other species, want to be with their mothers all day (and night) long, want to be carried, and cry when separated from their mothers. But, many people in our western industrialized culture see that as abnormal. Our children are not our enemies. They want to be with us, because they love us. A lot.” Credit: 1 R CERP and 1 Contact Hour

  • CONF 2016 Addressing BFHI Step 10 for Underserved Population: Reducing Breastfeeding Disparities through Peer and Professional Support

    Contains 3 Component(s), 1.00 credit offered

    This session provides an overview of how equitable access to peer and professional support—via full implementation of Step 10 of the Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative—can reduce inequities in lactation initiation and continuation rates in underserved communities. Topics addressed include the importance of using a public health framework for understanding and responding to lactation challenges that stem from a family’s social context, structural barriers that contribute to inequitable access to lactation support and to breastfeeding, barriers and facilitators to implementing community breastfeeding programs, and examples of strategies and programs. While the speakers discuss data, programs, and experiences in the United States, the concepts, frameworks, and strategies presented are relevant in global settings. The question and answer session at the end gives more information on global application of the presentation content. Credit: 1 L CERP and 1 Contact Hour
