Working together to achieve "Breast is Best

Working together to achieve "Breast is Best

21 Dec '16

It is widely accepted that breastfeeding is best for all infants.

However, some infants and mothers may face challenges in establishing and maintaining breastfeeding. These difficulties are exacerbated for infants with complex medical presentations, including structural, cardio-respiratory, gastroenterological and neurodevelopmental anomalies. The impact of early hospitalisation brings another level of complexity to this already challenging situation.

This two-day evidence-based lecture series is targeted towards speech pathologists, lactation specialists, other allied health, nursing and medical professionals working with neonates and infants with feeding difficulties. This seminar aims to improve feeding outcomes for infants and mothers through a collaborative team approach in an advanced clinical practice context.
