Promoting Self-Management of Breast and Nipple Pain During Breastfeeding

Brush up on your skills and knowledge about the management of pain during breastfeeding with this presentation! We are excited to offer a free presentation with Dr. Ruth Lucas titled "Promoting Self-Management of Breast and Nipple Pain During Breastfeeding". This presentation offers an exciting look at the randomized controlled trial that Dr. Lucas and her team recently conducted to look at the feasibility, acceptability, and efficacy of a breastfeeding self-management (BSM) intervention for breast and nipple pain during breastfeeding.

Learn more about the mechanism of pain during breastfeeding including the genetic risk for alterations in pain sensitivity, the relationship between breast and nipple pain and breastfeeding self-efficacy and maternal mood, and new information about a successful intervention to promote self-management of pain during breastfeeding.

This webinar is approved for 1 L-CERP.

Promoting Self-Management of Breast and Nipple Pain for Women During Breastfeeding
USA Ruth Lucas, PhD, RNC, CLS

Ruth Lucas, PhD, RNC, CLS, received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from George Mason University (1986) and her Doctor of Philosophy of Science (2011) from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Based on 20 years of supporting women and infants to initiate breastfeeding, her research focuses on the biobehavioral mechanisms of breastfeeding, such as breast and nipple pain. Dr. Lucas and her team conducted a pilot randomized control trial (RCT) as part of the Center for Accelerating Precision Pain Self- Management (CAPPS-M) (P20NR016605). The pilot RCT tested the feasibility, acceptability, and efficacy of a breastfeeding self-management (BSM) intervention for breast and nipple pain during breastfeeding and found the BSM intervention significantly reduced breast and nipple pain and is associated with pain sensitivity polymorphisms. Her published work describes management of pain during breastfeeding, a clinical indictor of infant breastfeeding behaviors, and a biomedical device to measure breastfeeding in real time.

Objective 1: Describe the occurrence of breast and nipple pain women experience during breastfeeding

Objective 2: Describe the mechanism of pain and how breast and nipple pain occur during breastfeeding

Objective 3: Verbalize strategies to promote self-management for women experiencing breast and nipple pain during breastfeeding

Abstract:

Despite 90% of women experiencing breast and nipple pain during breastfeeding, mothers rarely receive adequate knowledge and skills for breastfeeding pain self-management and cease breastfeeding. Our randomized control trial (RCT) pilot study tested the feasibility, acceptability, and efficacy of a breastfeeding self-management intervention (BSM) on breast and nipple pain and breastfeeding outcomes. Sixty women were recruited after delivery and completed survey measures of pain and breastfeeding outcomes, pain sensitivity testing and a biological sample to assess genetic risk for pain at baseline. Both groups completed pain and breastfeeding outcomes surveys via texting links using REDCap 7.4. Women in the intervention group received biweekly nurse-lead texting and cloud-based educational modules addressing breast and nipple pain and breastfeeding challenges. The BSM intervention was acceptable and sustainable for 94% of the women who continued to breastfed to 6 weeks. Acute breast and nipple pain at 1 and 2 weeks were significantly reduced and was associated with pain sensitivity polymorphisms, suggesting a genetic risk profile of pain-associated breastfeeding cessation.

How much time do I have to view the presentations?

  • The viewing time will be specified for each product. When you purchase multiple items in your cart, the viewing time becomes CUMULATIVE. Ex. Lecture 1= 2 weeks and Lecture Pack 2 = 4 Weeks, you will have a total of 6 weeks viewing time for ALL the presentations made in that purchase.
  • Time for viewing the talks begins once you purchase the product. For Live Webinars & Symposiums, the viewing period begins from when the live event takes place. Presentations can be accessed 24/7 and can be viewed as many times as you like during the viewing period.

What are bundled lectures?

  • Presentations may be available individually or via a bundled package. Bundled lectures are a set of lectures that have been put together based on a specific category or topic. Some lectures will be available in both individual and lecture form, whereas others will be available only via a bundled lecture pack.

Will there be Handouts?

  • YES! Each lecture comes with a PDF handout provided by the Speaker.

Some lectures include a Q&A, what does that mean?

  • During our online conferences, presentations that occur live are also followed by a short 15 minute Question & Answer Session. The Speaker addresses questions that were posted by Delegates during the presentation. We include the recording of these Q&A Sessions as a bonus for you.

How can I receive a Certificate?

  • Once you are done viewing the lecture or the lectures within a bundle, submit your attendance record in order to be able to download your certificate.
