Event description

Description

The Clinical Lactation Practicum (CLP) focuses on increasing the health care professional’s knowledge of lactation problems and methods of intervention. The CLP provides an opportunity for direct observation, instruction, and hands-on demonstration of breastfeeding support and counseling. Students shadow experienced hospital and clinic-based International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC).

The Practicum is a 2-day course. The first day will be observation at a local hospital, observing an IBCLC. The second day is at the Mom's Place, observing and practicing hands-on assistance with clients.

Effective January 1, 2019, you must be a current Texas WIC employee to attend this class. Similar learning opportunities will be available in the future for non-WIC students. Current Texas WIC employees will no longer pay to attend. If you are a Texas WIC employee and need to register, please contact the WIC CE Coordinator for a discount code to register for free.

Students will need to provide proof of immunizations and may also be required to complete patient safety modules in advance to comply with the hosting hospital’s policy regarding patient safety and liability. The complete immunization documentation must be sent to Mom's Place by the deadline date provided in your packet (2-3 weeks prior) or you will be cancelled from the class.

The Practicum is limited to 2 students per date with specific dates for degreed and non-degreed students. Degreed professionals include degreed, licensed, and board certified professionals such as physicians, nurses, dietitians, nutritionists, and IBCLCs. Non-degreed para-professionals include Peer Counselors, La Leche League Leaders, WIC Certifying Specialists, Doulas, etc.

Failing to cancel at least a week in advance will forfeit the registration fee and may affect your ability to reschedule this class in the future.
