Deal or No Deal? A Game Show Approach to IBCLC Ethics

Time-frame: 60-120
CERP: yes

Deal or No Deal? What if determining the IBCLC’s/Healthcare provider’s ¬†correct course of action, when faced with a moral, legal or ethical dilemma, was as fun as being a game show contestant? This session will review the ILCA Standards of Practice, IBLCE Code of Professional Conduct, the IBLCE Scope of Practice for IBCLCs, and other authorities affecting our professional work (i.e. licensing and the International Code of Marketing of Breast-milk Substitutes). Look for humor, prizes and even buzzers to make this analysis of IBCLC ethics memorable — and fun. We’ll cover common everyday problems (what if your boss requires you to hand out a formula discharge bag?) and more theoretical ones (can anyone own a patent on human milk components?) An opportunity for audience members to pose hypothetical situations will provide take-home-and-use answers: a prize for everyone! Objectives: The learner will be able to: 1. describe the differences between the ILCA Standards of Practice, the IBLCE Code of Professional Conduct and the IBLCE Scope of Practice for IBCLCs; 2. implement immediate changes in record-keeping to conform with ethical benchmarks for lactation consultation; 3. identify (and avoid) real and perceived conflicts of interest in lactation consultation practice; 4. describe the influence of marketing of breastmilk substitutes in the workplace, so as to avoid becoming an unwitting salesperson for formula;5. change at least three elements in her day-to-day practice to protect a mother’s confidential information

Optimal time: 90 minutes. This session meets E-CERPs requirements.
