Registration Open for Comprehensive Lactation Course: Mastering the Blueprint

Breastfeeding Outlook, the nation’s premier lactation education company, is now offering an exciting course that combines in-person seminars with online learning to support learners in mastering a lactation curriculum.

Herndon, VA August 3, 2009—
Breastfeeding Outlook’s Marie Biancuzzo, RN MS IBCLC will teach a comprehensive course to prepare candidates for the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE) exam. This highly interactive course, which also focuses on improving clinical outcomes, will be offered in two metro areas this October: Denver, Colorado and Baltimore, MD.

The much-anticipated new course, Marie Biancuzzo's Comprehensive Lactation Course: Mastering the Blueprint, combines four in-person seminar days with unique online education components. The course covers all thirteen disciplines and twelve chronological areas of the exam blueprint and provides the required number of credits for IBLCE exam
candidates. Throughout their study, participants will apply concepts and principles to situations commonly encountered in real-life clinical practice.

The course taps the educational expertise of two experts in the lactation field. Marie Biancuzzo, RN MS IBCLC, is the founder of Breastfeeding Outlook. She is the author of Breastfeeding the Newborn: Clinical Strategies for Nurses and multiple independent-study modules, as well as over 100 articles, many in peer-reviewed publications. Marie has more than twenty years of experience in maternal-child clinical care and continuing education. She is well-known for her popular two-day Lactation Exam Review course, which attracts hundreds of participants from coast to coast each year.

Ann Davis, RPh IBCLC, is the founder of Breastfeeding Associates. Ann Davis has taught classes, led breastfeeding support groups, and provided private consultation for lactating mothers. With more than twenty years as a retail pharmacist and compounding pharmacist, Ann is an expert in pharmacology and endocrinology.

With this solid foundation, candidates will gain the knowledge and skills they need both to deliver the highest quality, evidence-based care every day and to pass their professional IBLCE exam in 2010.
