Robin Glass and Lynn Wolf, Paediatric Occupation Therapists and Lactation Consultants, are traveling to Prince George to teach this course on feeding and swallowing disorders in infancy on June 1&2 2018! They are both clinical infant specialists, are NDT trained and have faculty roles at the University of Washington.
The course features a core day looking at foundational infant feeding skills, including suck-swallow-breathe co-ordination, information regarding bottle and breast feeding for the premature infant, the implications of reflux and more. Past participants note that they have a better understanding of the physiological requirements of safe and effective feeding patterns, and are better equipped to assist those infants who are struggling.
This course is open to 5 additional satellite centers (Abbotsford, Kamloops, Kelowna, Nanaimo, Victoria) to allow greater access to this specialized CPD opportunity. Please note that this course requires a minimum of two people registered per satellite center.
We encourage Physiotherapists, Dieticians, Lactation Consultants, Nurses, Occupational Therapists, Paediatricians, Physicians, Nurse Practitioners and Speech and Language Pathologists to register.
