Staff Training - 16 Hour Learner Workshop
To provide hospital staff with the knowledge and skills necessary to practice and promote evidence-based breastfeeding support services
The 16-Hour BBC Learner Workshop is designed to provide healthcare workers, including physicians, nurses, lactation educators, and others in routine contact with mothers, with the knowledge and skills to support a mother’s decision to breastfeed. This workshop, ideally given by a team of at least two trainers, is interactive. It includes videos, and activities for staff participants before they practice parent-infant attachment. This leads to increased competence to support newborn breastfeeding and consequently, increased patient satisfaction.
- The thirteen individual modules in PowerPoint format have detailed speaker’s notes on each slide.
- Note: In order to have all the tools needed to offer this workshop, trainers also need to print out the documentation provided in the Train the Trainer Workshop that follows this section.
