  • Duration: 60 Mins
  • Credits: 1 CERP, 1 L-CERP, 1 CME, 1 Dietetic CEU
  • Learning Format: Live Webinar

  • Origin: GOLD Learning
Abstract:

This session will focus on functional assessment and treatment of tethered oral tissue in the breastfeeding infant. Participants will understand the importance of task analysis of the motor skills to support sucking, prior to referring an infant for a release. Post op treatment has focused on active wound management (Ghaheri, B. 2017) rather than neuromuscular re-education. This approach multidisciplinary approach encourages lactation consultants to partner with body works specialists and speech pathologists to develop the underlying motor skills to support sucking.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will understand the goal of a functional assessment of the motor skills to support breast feeding
2) Participants will be able to distinguish active wound management from neuromuscular re-education post frenotomy.
3) Participants will be able to implement at least four functional post op exercises to support suck rehabilitation
