Primary Care Breastfeeding Medicine Basics for Healthcare Providers - Live or Online
The Milk Mob’s one-day basic breastfeeding training for providers (curriculum here) instructs participants on prenatal breastfeeding education, intrapartum and early postpartum support, and differential diagnosis and management of the most common breastfeeding problems encountered by primary care providers. These problems include evaluation and management of low milk supply, breast/nipple pain, the use of medications during breastfeeding including contraception, complications in the early postpartum period, and breast pump counseling.
We have partnered with GOLD Learning to publish an online version of our accredited Primary Care Breastfeeding Medicine for Healthcare Providers.
This is a 7 hour course designed for medical providers who care for breastfeeding mother/baby dyads in their OB/Gyn, family medicine or pediatric practices. It offers 7.25 CME credits and 7.25 CERPS in its entirety, and focuses on requisite knowledge needed to understand and execute management of common breastfeeding problems, such as mastitis, sore nipples, low/high milk supply, infant fussiness, breastfeeding infants who fail to gain weight, and medication concerns.
The material in this course should be considered fundamental knowledge for any medical resident or other health care provider-in-training who plans to work with breastfeeding dyads after graduation. Upon registration the course materials are available for 12 weeks. Individuals who complete this course are offered a free 3 year Milk Mob Trainee Membership.
