US/Central

This is the first-of-its-kind U.S.-based advanced clinical breastfeeding medicine conference for providers. The goal of this conference is to expand the depth of clinical knowledge for providers who are practicing or intend to practice breastfeeding medicine. Each session will focus on evaluation and management strategies in a small-group, case-based format. We intend to maximize sharing of clinical experiences and ideas among all attendees.
The Milk Mob Advanced Breastfeeding Medicine Specialist Conference is designed for physicians and other medical providers, regardless of specialty, who would like to hone their Breastfeeding Medicine skills. Breastfeeding Medicine Specialists have a variety of roles, such as providing medical leadership for a lactation clinic, chairing a breastfeeding work group, committee or department, or providing comprehensive lactation services for breastfeeding dyads.
Please be aware that this course is designed for providers only, including physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, midwives, dentists, pharmacists, and individuals-in-training for these health professions.

Maryland Community of Lactation Consultants Presents Dr Frank Nice

Type: Conferences | Location: Baltimore, Maryland - USA [Mid-Atlantic]
06/13/2017 - 2:00pm
06/13/2017 - 8:00pm
US/Eastern

Our Speakers in June are:

Frank J. Nice, RPh, DPA, CPHP Dr. Nice has practiced as a consultant, lecturer, and author on medications and breastfeeding for 40 years. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Pharmacy, a Masters in Pharmacy Administration, Master’s and Doctorate Degrees in Public Administration, and Certification in Public Health Pharmacy. Dr. Nice practiced at the NIH and served as a Project Manager at the FDA. He recently retired after 43 years of government service. He has also organized and participated in over 50 medical missions to the country of Haiti.

Cheryl Harrow, DNP, FNP-BC, IBCLC, Dr. Cheryl Harrow is a Family Nurse Practitioner in the Newborn Nursery at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center and teaches in the Doctor of Nursing Practice program at the Catholic University of America. She has been an IBCLC since 1990 and does frenotomies for inpatients and through the Emergency Department for outpatients. Cheryl is involved in research and has multiple publications on lactation and neonatal abstinence syndrome.

June Topics Are:

Nonprescription Drugs for the Breastfeeding Mother: Many new mothers are afraid to take anything if they get sick while nursing a baby. But there are many Over- The- Counter (OTC) medications that would be fine. Dr Nice will talk about how to help parents find safety information on OTC drugs and how to counsel parents through the decisions of risks & benefits of medications while breastfeeding.

Sore Nipple Treatments: Dr. Nice will present current information on the various treatments of sore nipples along with research on the use of peppermint oil gel as an option.

Recreational Drugs and Drugs Used to Treat Addicted Mothers: A new drug is created. It goes through animal testing, then, if safe, it goes through testing in humans to find the proper dosage and to see how it should be used and not used. This information is critically evaluated and summarized in a package insert distributed with the drug. Wouldn’t it be great if drugs of abuse went through this process? Unfortunately, they do not. Frank Nice and Cheryl Harrow have addressed this lack of information in their new book. They also set down guidelines from professional organizations such as the ACOG, AAP, and ABM. Dr. Nice will address the Marijuana dilemma that many have questions about. Then Cheryl will lead us in a variety of case studies. The scenarios will cover real life situations with common issues that need to be considered in deciding if a mother can safely breastfeed, for example: Hep B+, Hep C+, HIV+, positive urine tox with various drugs, relapse during pregnancy and postpartum, prescription drug use and abuse, and more. It will be a very informative and interactive session guaranteed to make you put your thinking caps on.
