Abstract:

In July 2014, for the first time, stakeholders from 12 countries across the world and major underrepresented communities gathered to explore global barriers that make it difficult to attain the International Board Certified Lactation Consultant® (IBCLC®) credential. Hosted by the three international organizations – IBLCE®, ILCA®, and LEAARC – the Summit contributed to a much larger movement to dismantle inequities within the field. This session will explore how the Summit contributed to this larger movement, how this movement is gaining momentum, and ways in which lactation professionals and organizations can work to reduce inequities. It will also present major findings from the 2014 Lactation Summit. The session is led by Cathy Carothers, chair of the design team for the initiative, and Sherry Payne, the 2014 Lactation Summit facilitator.

Dr. Pound is a Clinical Investigator at the CHEO Research Institute, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Ottawa, and the Resident Research Coordinator for the Pediatric Residency Program at the University of Ottawa. She is a specialist in the field of Consulting Pediatrics and has presented at national meetings, and published in the area of breastfeeding, and has authored a position statement on breastfeeding for the Canadian Pediatric Society.

Abstract:

Canadian physicians are ill-equipped to support breastfeeding mothers as their confidence, attitudes and knowledge are known to be suboptimal. We developed, delivered, and evaluated a combination of continuing professional development (CPD) activities targeting specific gaps uncovered in our previous Canadian physicians’ breastfeeding assessment, with the ultimate goal of encouraging participants to integrate new skills and knowledge in their practice. Methods We developed and delivered an interactive workshop to facilitate physicians’ ability to support patients’ breastfeeding practices. We distributed communication tools to improve information retention. We performed phone outreach 4 to 8 weeks post workshop to reinforce take-home messages, gather information on implementation of breastfeeding support practices taught at the workshop, and to gather information on physicians’ current perceptions and practices. Participation, satisfaction with the CPD activities and learning were tracked through questionnaires and follow-up phone outreach. We aimed to recruit 30 to 40 physicians but recruited 7. Results Workshop participation increased participants’ confidence in breastfeeding counseling skills, improved their knowledge, and was associated with a desire to change clinical practice. The workshop was rated as relevant, interesting, effective, and helpful. Conclusion Physician recruitment was much more difficult than anticipated, and a large selection bias was inevitable as only physicians with a keen interest in learning about breastfeeding participated in the study. However, our participants rated the intervention very positively. Given the difficulty in recruitment, a more feasible approach needs to be adapted and evaluated. In future, we will target the intervention at residency level.

Abstract:

Despite advances in human rights legislation in Canada and the US, women still face harassment and discrimination when they breastfeed in public. In the last 15 years in Alberta, Canada, reports of discrimination escalated even as policies were adopted to affirm and support the right of women and children to breastfeed in public. In 2014 the Breastfeeding Action Committee of Edmonton (BACE) received a grant from the Alberta Human Rights Education and Multiculturalism Fund to further development of a tool kit for Breastfeeding Friendly spaces. The project included policy, procedure and training development for stakeholders and a public education campaign. Public attitudes towards breastfeeding in public, including in specific spaces where discrimination had occurred - swimming pools, the public library - were measured prior to the implementation of a Breastfeeding Friendly program that included policy articulation, staff training, and public education. Public attitudes were measured after program implementation. This presentation will explore the impact of the implementation of Edmonton's Breastfeeding Friendly project on the potential for families to feel safe and welcome to breastfeed in Edmonton's public spaces.

Abstract:

Dental caries are the most common chronic infectious disease of early childhood and new recommendations urge families to seek pediatric dental care at a younger age. For families who are practicing full-term breastfeeding and/or nocturnal breastfeeding (night-nursing), many are also reporting increased pressure to night-wean, wean completely, or otherwise incorporate care that is often not practical or evidence-based. A clear understanding of the research and realities of breastfeeding and the risks of dental caries, along with advocacy skills, are integral for breastfeeding families feeling confident in their breastfeeding relationship and their dental care. This presentation will compare the latest research and recommendations from the dental and lactation fields, as well as outline support strategies for assisting lactation clients as they understand the relevant information, communicate with their dental professionals, and make informed decisions about their breastfeeding relationships.
