Abstract:

Are you a lactation professional or health care provider looking for ways to engage your audience? Whether your audience is breastfeeding families, parents-to-be, peer counselors, volunteers, health care professionals or lactation specialists, then this presentation is for you! In it, I will show how creative solutions can overcome a lack of resources or technology to provide mothers and families with engaging and effective breastfeeding support. This session will cover innovative and interactive educational strategies and activities that can be used to capture your audience’s attention and to encourage them to retain vital information and strategies to help them breastfeed.

These concepts are practical and applicable to all types of settings, including but not limited to: breastfeeding support groups, lectures and presentations, training sessions, webinars, seminars and one-on-one lactation consultations. Moreover, they are easily modifiable to fit the needs of different populations and cultures. As many lactation professionals work in low-income communities or resource-poor settings that frequently lack many of the latest gadgets and expensive lactation aids, this presentation will offer demonstrations and tutorials of Do-It-Yourself (DIY) options that can ensure that breastfeeding mothers and families get the best support possible, even when resources are scarce.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Name at least 2 benefits of interactive education;

b) Objective 2: Describe least 3 learning activities to utilize in lactation education;

Objective 3: Demonstrate at least 1 way to illustrate a wide, deep latch to your audience;
