The 2nd Sunday Breastfeeding Medicine Case Discussion Series
This series, scheduled for 1 hour on the second Sunday of each month, is designed for individuals who currently practice breastfeeding medicine, or are new to the field, and are interested in gaining clinical skills in breastfeeding medicine. Each session will award 1 CME and 1 CERP. To accommodate international attendance, we are varying the times. No experience is necessary to participate, we welcome all learners!
Each webinar will host a presenter who will lead a discussion on a breastfeeding medicine topic centered around a clinical case. This learning format will allow participants to share their experiences and ideas on strategies to evaluate, diagnose, and /or manage various complex breastfeeding medicine problems.
If you are a physician, researcher or other medical provider (nurse practitioner, physician assistant, midwife, dentist, or a student of these professions), you are invited to submit a clinical breastfeeding medicine case that would be of interest to those who either practice or have an interest in breastfeeding medicine, and want to learn more. We encourage presenters to share cases that are interesting, unusual, complex and/or controversial regarding presentation, diagnosis, treatment, or coordination of care.
