Abstract:

The prevention and early treatment of diseases is part of a Speech and Language Therapist's working field. The question is, at what point can SL Therapy have a preventative influence, what are the advantages of early consultations and treatments and what significance does a nursing and lactation consultation have in this context. Asha and Fletcher (2005, S.1) called a SL Therapist and a Lactation Consultant a "Baby's feeding dream team", so the combination of these two professions might be a good way to facilitate difficult breastfeeding relationships and reduce SL disorders over the years.

Breastfeeding is the physiological way to feed a baby. It supports the Mother-Child-Bond and sets the foundation for the undisturbed organic, sensorial, motoric, cognitive, oral and social development. If there is a problem with the ingestion of food (oromotor dysfunction or dysphagia), the topic of breastfeeding tends to move to the background. But what if breastfeeding can be used as part of the therapy? Promoting early SLT and by supporting the breastfeeding and preventing the use of artificial teats, which can have a negative influence especially on the oromotor and muscle development, the outcome might improve.

Abstract:

The Affordable Care Act requires insurance companies to provide no-cost-sharing lactation benefits to mothers and babies.IBCLC is the premier professional to provide breastfeeding services, but the lack of broad state licensure for lactation consultants limits access to services, as Medicaid and most insurers will not directly cover unlicensed health care providers. Establishing IBCLC services in the physician’s clinic setting overcomes this limitation and allows for increased access to expert breastfeeding help. This presentation will equip IBCLCs and physicians with tools necessary to collaborate and implement a lactation program. Details regarding billing, financial arrangements, complementary care, marketing, etc., will be discussed. In the United States; there is an entire Facebook group devoted to this topic and the speakers regularly field questions about establishing this type of arrangement. Melissa and Renee will discuss two different models from their experience: one in an OB-GYN clinic and one in a naturopathic family medicine clinic.

Abstract:

During a time when lactation professionals are facing unprecedented negativity on top of the usual challenges, it’s easy to get drawn into the conflict or to start wondering if what we do makes a difference. How do we lift one another up to maintain a positive focus on using our knowledge and skills to guide families who are feeling scared and confused? How do we set aside our biases to make sure we’re listening to all sides? How do we connect and collaborate with other professions to expand the network of support for new families? This panel discussion focuses on answering those questions and providing steps that can be taken to promote collaboration both within the field of lactation and with other members of the health care team to improve breastfeeding knowledge translation and mobilization. This is your chance to hear from Dr. Amy Brown, Christy Jo Hendricks and Joy MacTavish as they share their thoughts on this hot topic during our panel discussion titled “Lifting up the Lactation Profession”.
