We are proud to present a onehour webinar followed by Q&A focused on building understanding about how to develop a pathway for reimbursement for lactation services in your agency.
Guidance will be provided to help you to determine the important factors you will need to explore as you create a plan for your agency to generate revenue for lactation services.
By identifying professionals who are able to bill for breastfeeding care and considering your agency’s FQHC or CPSP status*, attendees will be able to form a plan for seeking reimbursement.
*It will be helpful for you to find out prior to viewing the webinar whether your agency has FQHC or CPSP status (or both.)

Objectives
Following the didactic presentations, participants will be able to:
– List three types of professionals who are able to bill for breastfeeding
– Review the differences in billing for an FQHC or CPSP provider
– Identify the next steps for your agency to generate revenue for breastfeeding

A BreastfeedLA Webinar: What Can I Do? Thoughts on Scopes of Practice in Lactation

 


Recorded Webinar from 12/06/16 – $30 – Purchase Recording for Individual Use Only

 

 

Have you ever wondered exactly how lactation support providers are qualified, certified, or trained to help breastfeeding mothers?  Have you questioned how your own certification fits into the picture of breastfeeding supporters?  Do you have questions about how best to utilize the members of your lactation staff for optimal maternal/infant care?

This webinar was recorded on Tuesday, Dec 6, 2016 from 10a.m. to 11:00a.m. (Pacific)  with Live Question and Answer Session from 11-11:30 a.m.  It explores the definition of the term “scope of practice” and its applicability to the lactation support field.

Upon completion of the webinar, participants will be able to:

– define the term “scope of practice” as it applies to the lactation support provider

– identify 3 major certifying and accreditation organizations in the lactation field

– identify 3 scenarios in which a differing scope of practice would affect the type of lactation care provided

This webinar is approved for 1 E-CERP and 1 CEU.
