Clinical Applications in Lactation Care:

A 2-day practice-oriented intensive course

Professional Education from Evergreen Perinatal Education

skin-to-skin after birthCourse Description

Applications in Lactation Care is a two-day, in-person, intensive course for sharpening assessment and patient care skills. This practice-oriented workshop is part of a new education plan from Evergreen Perinatal Education.

Applications in Lactation Care provides a summary of your didactic education and clinical experience, focusing on case studies and the critical thinking required for those who are working with infant and child breastfeeding issues in maternal-child health. This can be your final step in preparation for the IBLCE exam, or it can be an opportunity for you to collaborate with other experienced clinicians and problem solve complex case studies.  This workshop provides 15 instructional hours in topics from the IBLCE exam Blueprint and 15 CERPs for those who are already IBCLCs.  In addition to attendance and presentation of case studies, these two days will provide networking opportunities, and roundtable dialogue on issues in lactation care.
