BreastSide Manner: A Patient-Centered Approach to Lactation Support
Warm and empathic bedside manner is a lost art in provider-patient interactions. Be it time constraints, systemic limitations, lack of trust or training, the disconnect is apparent and the consequences are grave. In this talk, lactation support providers have an opportunity to learn how to be intentional in their approach to care in a way that honors the patient and their needs while also meeting them where they are. This talk will consider attitude, cultural, language, and other factors that might have traditionally impeded communication or relational connection in order to get to the heart of drawing lines of trust and respect between Patient and provider.

Approaching Care When You’re Barely There: Reimagining Empathy When You’ve Got Nothing Left to Give
Healthcare professionals, particularly those in the lactation field, are known for providing care that is emotionally, physically, and mentally taxing. Providing care as lactation professionals during a pandemic has driven many to experience compassion fatigue. This phenomenon impacts one’s personal health in a myriad of ways and also has a significant impact on how one provides empathetic care to families. The current communication model for providing empathetic care in lactation is steeped in the patriarchal model, which actually suppresses empathy. This presentation will help health care providers identify signs of compassion fatigue and provide tools for self-assessment. Additionally, attendees will learn how to apply a natural empathetic model to their lactation/ IBCLC practice to protect their personal health and promote a more supportive way to engage with their families.
