Case Studies: Considering Clinical Issues and Ethical Undertones
Working to support breastfeeding families presents opportunities to improve inter-professional relationships, enhance clinical skills, build cultural sensitivity and respect as well as address inequities in service provision. Through the lens of two case studies we raise awareness of potential inconsistencies in care and subtle ethical issues which are sometimes overlooked. The presentation will invite participant involvement in discussion about the clinical management of lactose overload and tongue tie, as well as, discovery of potential ethical issues.
