Case Studies in Breastfeeding

Time-frame: 60-90
CERP: yes

4 breastfeeding case studies describe assessment and management of cases where breastfeeding was in jeopardy. Both high tech and low tech solutions for cases are reviewed.

Telling stories is a proven method of teaching. Each case reviewed presents different challenges. The fourth case describes case management of preterm twins in Guinea, Africa, using only low tech methods. This is important given the wide footprints of some natural disasters and conflict/refugee situations where all health workers should possess emergency management of lactation skills in order to protect newborns and young infants.
