  • Duration: 60 Mins
  • Credits: 1 CERP, 1 L-CERP, 1 Nurse Contact Hours, 1 CME

Mastitis has been occurring for as long as breastfeeding itself. It is a very common difficulty in nursing women. For many decades, its diagnosis and management were considered to be straightforward. However, in the last decade new concepts have been put forward, such as dysbiosis, subacute mastitis, and the concept of the mastitis spectrum. In this talk, we will take a look at the scientific evidence (or lack thereof) for these terms and discuss their impact on day to day clinical management.

Learning Objectives:

1. Explain the clinical definition and management of acute mastitis.
2. Describe two of the proposed definitions for other types of mastitis.
3. Analyze two current studies on mastitis spectrum physiology and management.
