  • CONF 2016 Developing a Clinical Lactation Training Program: A Model for Academic Medical Centers

    Contains 3 Component(s), 1.00 credit offered

    Obtaining the necessary lactation training to fulfill the eligibility requirements of the IBLCE certification examination can be difficult. For aspiring IBCLCs, completion of a Pathway 3 program may be their only option to meet the requirements. However, finding mentors to directly supervise their training can be a major obstacle. The speakers of this informative session present their experiences implementing a Pathway 3 clinical lactation training program in a university health system in the United States. They discuss the planning process in developing a 6-month, full-time, clinical training program designed to meet the 500-hour clinical experience requirement. Their model may be used as a guideline by lactation departments at other medical centers to develop their own clinical lactation training program. Credit: 1 L CERP and 1 Contact Hour

  • CONF 2017 Catalyzing Change: Building Baby-Friendly Momentum in Vulnerable Communities

    Contains 3 Component(s), 1.00 credit offered Recorded On: 07/22/2017

    Promoting and supporting lactation is essential to improve the future health of parents and their children. Racial and ethnic disparities in breastfeeding rates and perinatal care practices unfortunately continue to be major challenges faced by at-risk populations in the United States. This session identifies the special challenges of vulnerable communities and presents strategies implemented by the CHAMPS initiative (Community and Hospitals Advancing Maternity Practices South) in the Deep Southern United States to engage vulnerable communities in overcoming barriers to better support breastfeeding and maternity care practices. For example, the session highlights the importance of community engagement and building relationships with community members rather than imposing your perceived solutions on them. It also discusses how to gain momentum for system level changes by focusing on smaller changes—such as rooming-in, skin to skin at delivery, and exclusive human milk feeding—which resulted in the larger change of hospitals entering the BFHI pathway.

  • CONF 2017 Can Breastfeeding Protect Against Childhood Obesity?

    Contains 3 Component(s), 1.00 credit offered Recorded On: 07/22/2017

    This presentation reviews current research on the connection between breastfeeding and the prevention of childhood obesity. It explores the multiple maternal and infant factors involved in the development of childhood obesity as well as breastfeeding’s role in relationship to these factors. The presentation also discusses the newest systemic meta-analysis review which concludes that breastfeeding does have an effect on prevention but the degree of protection is influenced by the other multiple factors involved in the development of childhood obesity; therefore, breastfeeding promotion is only one part of a multifaceted plan needed to reduce childhood obesity.

  • CONF 2017 Breast Cancer and Its Relationship to Breastfeeding

    In this session, Fedro Peccatori, MD, PhD reviews research on the dose-response relationship between breastfeeding and several different types of breast cancer. He also describes the hypothesized mechanisms of how breastfeeding reduces the risk of breast cancer: 1) decreased breast cell susceptibility to becoming cancer cells due to lactation-induced differentiation of breast tissue, 2) fewer lifetime menstrual cycles and less estrogen exposure, 3) lower intra-mammary carcinogen levels, and 4) lower intra-mammary inflammation. He urges lactation professionals to not minimize the risks of not breastfeeding.

    Breast Cancer and Its Relationship to Breastfeeding

    In this session, Fedro Peccatori, MD, PhD reviews research on the dose-response relationship between breastfeeding and several different types of breast cancer. He also describes the hypothesized mechanisms of how breastfeeding reduces the risk of breast cancer: 1) decreased breast cell susceptibility to becoming cancer cells due to lactation-induced differentiation of breast tissue, 2) fewer lifetime menstrual cycles and less estrogen exposure, 3) lower intra-mammary carcinogen levels, and 4) lower intra-mammary inflammation. He urges lactation professionals to not minimize the risks of not breastfeeding.
