Home visits play an integral role in the practice of many Lactation Consultants around the world. There are undoubtedly many benefits to meeting our clients in their own space, and one of these is that we can immediately garner a wealth of valuable information within a very short period of time. Along with learning a variety of quick and easy ways to stealthily, respectfully gather vital information about important feeding practicalities, this presentation will explore mental health, cultural humility and personal safety. We will explore the array of clues and red flags that may unknowingly surround you with regard to the clients' mental health and their overall safety. Additionally, as someone who works with clientele from over 75 different countries, Johanna shares what she has learned regarding the variations and commonalities between cultures when it comes to performing home visits, and which behaviours we can adopt to ensure continued humility and respect.

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe 2 ways to apply cultural humility when working in the homes of families from a wide array of backgrounds
2. Name 3 signs to spot during a home visit that can signal the need for more in-depth mental health support for clients and their families
3. Recite 3 practical tips to implement at particular stages of the home visit that will ensure efficient information gathering, personal safety and time management
