Online Maternal-Child Health Continuing Education

GOLD Conferences International hosts three annual online conferences for maternal-child health care professionals. Through our unique online format, we provide virtual education from the world's leading researchers, clinicians, and educators. The GOLD format is appropriate for health care professionals who have limited time and/or budgets, and who want to remain close to their workplace and clients.

We have received overwhelming requests to provide ongoing access to presentation recordings and materials. For this reason, we created GOLD Learning, an archive of evidence-based education, largely sourced from our annual conferences.

On the GOLD Learning website, browse our catalogue of lectures that are geared towards Nurses, Midwives, Doulas, Lactation Consultants and other health care workers who provide care to women, infants and families. You’ll find we’ve assembled quite the mosaic of leading health care educators to assist with your continuing education needs.

You can search by the categories of presentations we have available, the type of Credit you are seeking, or by Speaker. As you browse, you are able to add individual presentations and / or specialized packages of presentations into your shopping cart. We are currently offering CERPs and will be providing CNE's, Midwifery CEUs & Dietetic CEUs in the near future.

With our strong focus on pairing stellar customer service with informative content, convenient online access and affordable pricing, we hope you enjoy all that GOLD Learning has to offer!

Kathleen discusses the implications of secondary traumatic stress or compassion fatigue among Perinatal health care professionals. Burnout and compassion fatigue can have serious consequences for both patients and providers. In this seminar, participants will learn about the causes and consequences of both burnout and secondary traumatic stress/compassion fatigue. Participants will also learn some specific strategies for integrating self-care into their care for others which can aid in recovery.

  • I loved GOLD so much that you’d be happy to scream it from a mountaintop! I had a lot of scheduling and time restraints so I am so thankful for this virtual option. The vast array of speakers, the convenience of watching at my leisure and ability to earn CERPs was a great benefit. I have been able to immediately apply a lot of it in my role of public health lactation support.”
    Millie Goins, WIC Breastfeeding Peer Counselor
    GOLD Lactation Online Conference Delegate
  • “The GOLD audience is receptive, fun, engaged and excited. I really appreciate the kinds of questions I am asked and how receptive the audience is to the kind of presentation content I provide. Very few conferences want a presenter to do the off the beaten track material I like to present. I will keep coming back as long as GOLD will have me!”
    Alison K. Hazelbaker, PhD, IBCLC, FILCA, CST, RCST
    GOLD Lactation Online Conference Speaker
  • “Having participated as a speaker at the last two GOLD Conferences has been one of the highlights of my career. The GOLD staff is one of a kind. We not only worked hard together but also had a lot of fun doing so. I have made so many friends in such a short time, not only with my GOLD contacts, but also with so many dedicated and wonderful GOLD participants.”
    Dr. Frank J. Nice, RPh, DPA, CPHP
    GOLD Lactation Conference Speaker
  • “I love the flexibility and availability of your conferences, and with my director’s hat on – the cost versus pricey travel, accommodations, etc. and the flexibility for attendance with people’s busy schedules has been awesome. I think it’s a great model and you have perfected the technology to have it run off well.”
    Suzanne H. Campbell, PhD, RN, IBCLC
    Director and Associate Professor
    School of Nursing. The University of British Columbia
  • “Getting education out to people who can't manage to travel to distant locations or take time off work, or afford the childcare fees they would incur if they had to attend in person, is so important and the difference these GOLD conferences make is invaluable. I have minimal computer skills but the format for attending makes it so easy for me to enjoy the benefits of the conferences.”
    Elizabeth Common, Midwife / Lactation Consultant
    The Royal Children's Hospital Melbourne Neonatal Unit
