Physicians and health care providers: Learn more about the National Library of Medicine’s Drugs and Lactation Database (LactMed) with a free informational webinar on September 22 at 6 p.m. ET.
I Never Heard of LactMed! Enhancing Obstetric and Pediatric Usage, a webinar from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), will demonstrate obstetric and pediatric use of LactMed, an online database containing information on drugs and other chemicals to which breastfeeding mothers may be exposed.
The hour-long session will:
- Educate participants about LactMed.
- Share tips on taking a brief but thorough history of the mother’s health and medications to support her choice to exclusively breastfeed and minimize supplementation.
- Describe information that is relevant to the obstetrician and pediatrician.
- Illustrate common problems and offer potential solutions and tips for anticipatory guidance.
