Advanced Clinical Tools for Management of Breastfeeding, Cry-fuss, Sleep and Mood Problems: Masterclasses in Neuroprotective Developmental Care

Breastfeeding difficulties and unsettled behavior are modifiable risk factors for postnatal depression, yet parents report being overwhelmed by conflicting advice; babies are often treated with pharmaceutical and surgical interventions which don’t improve outcomes; and many breastfeeding problems remain unidentified and unmanaged. Join us for two days of intensive hands-on clinical upskilling. Our Certification days offered you the evidence-base; now, in response to demand from our participants, we are offering you opportunity to learn, practice and be assessed in the specific NDC skillsets. We'd love to have you join us!

Presenters: Assoc Prof (Adj) Pamela Douglas, Assoc Prof Donna Geddes, Professor Laurence Walsh, Ms Renee Keogh, Ms Renee Kam, Dr Sharon Perella

Dates: Friday 21 and Saturday 22 September 2018

Times: 9 am – 5pm both days

Cost: $450 for two days

Focussed Clinical Breastfeeding Support

This educational activity teaches and assesses a set of core clinical competencies in clinical breastfeeding support, detailed in the Core Competencies for Neuroprotective Developmental Care (NDC) Handbook. The gestalt approach is based upon the new biomechanical model arising from ultrasound studies of breastfeeding babies' suck and swallow. It offers innovative approaches to a wide range of breastfeeding-related problems. This clinical breastfeeding support activity is part of the pathway to accreditation in Community-based Neuroprotective Development Care, an integrated, evidence-based approach to early life care. The activity aims to ensure you acquire a set of focussed clinical skills for identifying and effectively assisting with a wide range of breastfeeding problems in time-constrained clinical environments.
