The courses will provide healthcare professionals with an update on breastfeeding management, focusing on evidence-based practices which are supportive of successful breastfeeding for improved health outcomes for women and infants.
We provide the class, instructor, materials, and continuing education (CE) contact hours at no cost to you, your facility, or attendees. There may be times when a class cannot be scheduled when requested due to conflicts with the physician instructors’ schedule. We may also try to schedule 2 or more requests together to be more cost efficient or use available technology to provide a class.
We ask for a cost-free location, LCD projector, laptop, and approximately 20 physicians in attendance; however other healthcare professionals may attend. For more rural locations, the required number of physicians may be lowered.
You may choose to charge a fee to cover the costs of providing a meal or refreshments but please keep the cost minimal. Our classes may not be used as a fundraiser for your institution. Any food provided cannot be sponsored by a for-profit company with a commercial interest due to a potential conflict of interest.
Product-promotion material or product-specific advertisement of any type is prohibited in or during the CE activity. Promotional materials cannot be displayed or distributed in the education space immediately before, during or after a CE activity. Commercial Interests may not engage in sales or promotional activities while in the space or place of the CE activity.
A flyer will be generated to use for advertising the class to your staff and other hospitals or clinics in your area that may be interested in attending.
The goal of this conference is to provide health-care providers with an update on breastfeeding management, focusing on scientific research-based practices which are supportive of successful breastfeeding, postpartum influences on breastfeeding, and maternal medications.
