Lactation Counseling and Problem Solving

Tuesday, February 27, 2018, 4:00 PM

This course is developed and presented by the Texas WIC Program. WIC provides breastfeeding courses to prepare health-care providers to support breastfeeding women and infants. We believe that a positive, proactive approach to breastfeeding promotion and support is achieved through team effort and encourages all health-care workers who work with breastfeeding women and infants to attend.   This course is specifically designed for health professionals who counsel breastfeeding mothers and would like to improve problem-solving skills. The class emphasizes critical thinking skills and reinforces concepts learned in the Principles of Lactation Management (POLM) course.  This is an intermediate level course and is activity oriented. Small groups will work through case studies and rotate through skills activities. Be prepared to join the discussions and share your ideas with others in your group. While anyone may attend, this class is most suitable for WIC Breastfeeding Coordinators, labor and delivery nurses, postpartum nurses, home visiting nurses and those striving to sit for the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE) exam.  Registration fee includes course materials, continuing education contact hours, light breakfast and lunch.   Pre-requisite: Principles of Lactation Management class no more than 3 years prior or be an IBCLC.   Continuing Education Contact Hours: You must attend the entire course in order to receive continuing education contact hours.
