This program is designed to enhance healthcare providers performance and to provide participants with relevant skills and knowledge for managing tethered oral tissue conditions in the primary care setting.
Topics include, medical and surgical intervention, prevention strategies for failure to thrive in infants as well as identification of unrecognized risk factors, recognition of common misdiagnosis of reflux / GERD as well as associated speech and language risk factors for infants with ankyloglossia.
The morning session will focus on preventing failure to thrive in breastfeeding infants, mismanagement and recognizing common symptoms that are often misdiagnosed as well as understanding the current evidence on proper breastfeeding mechanics. The afternoon session will focus on Oral Facial Development related to tethered oral tissues and there impact on breastfeeding, cognitive and language development.
The goals of the conference are to improve patient outcomes for breastfeeding dyads through collaborative education with physicians, nurses, lactation consultants and the entire health care team.
At the end of the program participants should be able to:
1. Explain the risks and outcomes of diagnostic and therapeutic options available to breastfeeding dyads with Ankyloglossia.
2. Describe the current standards of care and treatment protocols for Ankyloglossia in infants and adolescents.
3. Demonstrate care in a manner that is consistent with new evidence-based practice guidelines for Ankyloglossia
4. Identify available resources for each associated oral disease process related to Ankyloglossia in all age groups.
