    Contains 3 Component(s), 1.50 credits offered Recorded On: 11/07/2017

    “Tongue-tie” is of great interest in some settings and is still quite unknown in others.

The speaker will present on signs/symptoms of tongue and lip tie; related health concerns; assessment, referral, and treatment strategies; aftercare; and the status of the evidence base. This presentation is designed to meet the needs of anyone who clinically assesses infants, works with feeding issues, and/or provides lactation care. Credit: 1.5 L CERPs and 1.5 Contact Hours
