How Did I Miss That?: Breast Assessment and Non-White Skin Tones

In celebration of IBCLC Day 2020, GOLD Learning is thrilled to present this free presentation from one of our most popular speakers, Nekisha Killings MPH, IBCLC. Breast assessment is a crucial clinical skill for IBCLCs, but sometimes common conditions don't present the way we were taught when they occur in clients with non-white skin. Join us for an hour of practice changing information about the clinical presentation of conditions frequently seen in lactating parents, such as mastitis, vasospasm, eczema and more, in clients with non-white skin tones.

Webinar recording now available. This webinar is approved for 1 L-CERP.

Abstract:

Is a red spot always a key indicator of mastitis? What about the deep purple trademark of vasospasm? How does eczema present on non-white skin? Performing a standard breast assessment may cause clinicians to overlook or misidentify key indicators of maladies in patients that are not fair skinned. Learn how you can improve your assessments and familiarize yourself with other ways to identify common conditions in patients populations that may not have been featured in your textbooks.
