Who Wears the Top Hat Under the Big Tent? Law and Ethics for Different Lactation Support Providers

Time-frame: 60-90
CERP: yes

Lots of people help breastfeeding families: IBCLCs, WIC Peer Counselors, doctors, nurses, dietitians, midwives, parent-to-parent counselors, childbirth educators. Different legal and ethical responsibilities apply to each of these helper groups. And there are responsibilities 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 breast/chestfeeding parents 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
