When Worlds Collide: How Ethics Differ for IBCLCs, Peer Counselors, Nurses and Volunteers

Time-frame: 60-90
CERP: yes

Lots of people help breastfeeding families: IBCLCs, WIC Peer Counselors, doctors, nurses, dietitians, midwives, mother-to-mother counselors, childbirth educators. Different legal and ethical responsibilities apply to each of these helper groups. And there are responsiblities that everyone must meet, no matter what the job title or work setting. This is a lively session to teach you how to follow the law, and meet high ethical and professional standards, all while serving breastfeeding mothers and children. Participants will be able to: (1) Identify differences in the scopes of practice for various professions serving breastfeeding dyads (2) Describe the difference between a professional “scope of practice” and a work place “conflict of interest” (3) Identify different ethical expectations for various professions serving a breastfeeding dyad

Note:
This session meets requirements for E-CERPs
