Maryland Coalition of Lactation Consultants Sharing Conferences

Type: Conferences | Location: Baltimore, Maryland - USA [North-East]

Supporting Families in Milk Sharing as an IBCLC (1.5 hours)
As International Board Certified Lactation Consultants as well as other breastfeeding professionals and volunteers, we have an ethical obligation to provide evidence-based information to families to support their breastfeeding relationship. We encounter and encourage families who need to supplement their baby's nutrition with something other than milk directly from their mother's breasts. Families have many options and this session explores how peer-to-peer milk sharing fits into the conversation.

Rainbow Families: Supporting Lactating LGBTQIA Families (1.5 hours)
Love makes a family - and yet the lactation needs of families in the LGBTQIA community can vary significantly. Learn about the unique challenges these families face in the health care system, particularly around birth and breastfeeding, and develop strategies for providing culturally sensitive care. Identify the ways in which different parts of the LGBTQIA community have much different needs, and how to navigate shifting terminology while remaining sensitive to the needs of each family in your care.

Social Media and Breastfeeding: Understanding Common Practices and Ethics for Breastfeeding Professionals (2 hours)
Facebook and Twitter? Instagram and Tumblr? Confused about how to engage with breastfeeding families while being mindful of your practice and ethical obligations? This is the session for you. We'll cover where to draw the line, how to know when to speak up and when to be quiet. We'll discuss HIPAA concerns and the difference between providing clinical care vs. education and support.

Lactation Management /Exam Preparation Course Cleveland 2015

The original Lactation Consultant Exam Review / Lactation Management Course, in its 25th season, developed by IBLCE Founder and author of Comprehensive Lactation Consultant Exam Review Linda J. Smith.
The 2015 Dayton course will be held Sept. 14-19, 2015 at Lakewood Hospital and is approved for a total of 45 CERPs.

The Lactation Management and Exam Preparation Course is a comprehensive review of the skills and knowledge needed for evidence-based professional lactation consultant practice. The course will help prepare candidates for the certification examination sponsored by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE).

Six days of instruction and three graded clinical exercises to be completed independently conclude with a practice examination to identify strengths and gaps in skill and knowledge areas. Interactive activities, clinical slides and videos, and skill-building techniques create a uniquely warm and supportive learning environment. This course was the first to be based on the IBLCE Exam Blueprint and is the longest-running course of its kind.

Dates and Location
Sept. 14-19, 2015 at Lakewood Hospital, Cleveland OH. Lakewood is providing meeting room space for this course. The hospital is NOT responsible in any way for any aspect of the course content, tuition, or registration. Please DO NOT contact the hospital for course information. Meals and lodging are available nearby, and contact numbers and more information will be sent with registration confirmations.

Three clinical exercises totaling 9 hours of independent study must be submitted before the last day of the course. A list of recommended exercises will be sent when registration is received.

If your organization would like to provide this course to a substantial number of participants, it may make sense to sponsor this course at your facility. Contact Linda Smith for details.
