Event description

Description

This course is developed and presented by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) WIC Program. DSHS provides breastfeeding courses to prepare health-care providers to support breastfeeding women and infants. We believe that a positive, proactive approach to breastfeeding promotion and support is achieved through team effort and encourages all health-care workers who work with breastfeeding women and infants to attend.

Objective: Participants will be able to counsel families about the benefits of breastfeeding, assist the mother in managing common breastfeeding problems, make appropriate referrals, teach breastfeeding classes, prepare breastfeeding materials, and support breastfeeding through breastfeeding friendly policies and procedures.

This is a 2-day intensive lecture-based course in lactation principles. It was designed to meet training requirements of Step 2 of the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative, minus the skills portion. The Texas Ten Step Program compared the content to the Baby-Friendly Guidelines and Evaluation Criteria to assure that it includes all topics outlined in Appendix A.

Registration fee is $65* and is due in advance. Fee includes course materials, continuing education contact hours, a light breakfast and lunch.

*NOTE FOR CHECK/PO PAY LATER REGISTRATION OPTION: The registration for check/PO states "Free" but there is a $65 fee to attend. This setting allows you to complete your registration without requiring a credit card at the time of submission.
