Developing a step-by-step care plan is arguably the most important part of patient care. Without it, necessary treatments may be neglected. As lactation providers, it is our role to set proper expectations for our clients, as well as measure clinical improvement and patient outcomes. When working with infants that struggle with sucking or other oral function issues, there is a process and a timeline we can put together that will guide the care we are giving. In this presentation you will learn how to provide guidance to your clients as you help them work through their infant’s oral function challenges.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1:You will discover what type of plan to create and implement based on the age and current sucking issues of the infant.

Objective 2: You will learn how to know if the care plan you’ve created is working, as well as how to make adjustments when it isn’t working.

Objective 3: You will learn how to facilitate a partnership with your clients to implement the plan and follow-up with you throughout the course of treatment.
