Stand By Me: Informed Consent and Collaborative Lactation Care Plans

Bryna Hayden, IBCLC

Course description
Informed consent is a common refrain in birth work, but it is often poorly taught, and poorly understood. This talk delves into the intricacies of autonomy, informed consent, collaboration, and multi-vocality in the goal-setting and plan creation processes. Together, we will explore the impacts of the concepts of "compliance" and move together through the ideas of "concordance" as a progressive and effective alternative approach to care.

Learners say 

This speaker understood the assignment, as they say. Bryna was easy to follow and their presentation was so rich in detail, but not overwhelmingly so.
