About the BFI IDM Workshop:
This IDM Workshop is a half-day session being delivered across the province to support staff in healthcare organizations. The objective is to increase ease and skill in having infant feeding informed decision making conversations with parents.
Content of the BFI IDM Workshop will include:
- Discussion of materials required to teach the content of the IDM workshop to other staff.
- An overview of the BFI IDM course content, with attention to strategies to effectively facilitate.
- Strategies concerning how to engage with families and support their informed decision-making process. Learning activities and videos are included.
Participants of the workshop will receive a BFI IDM Toolkit to take back to their organization which includes a PDF document, slide presentation, speaker notes, activity ideas and teaching videos. Each participant will also receive a Certificate of Attendance.
Please note you will be required to sign a contract that this course cannot be presented for financial gain for the facility or the facilitator. Individuals who do not sign the contract will not be eligible to participate in the workshop.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Note: Participants will NOT be trained on the BFI 20-Hour Course, or any breastfeeding content. Rather, participants will be taught how to facilitate dialogue connected to informed decision making. Therefore, participants should be knowledgeable about breastfeeding practice, anatomy and physiology, challenges and solutions, and BFI best practices.
- Each organization may send up to 4 participants.
- Priority will be given to organizations that have previously attended a BFI Implementation Workshop and/or a BFI 20-Hour Course Train-the-Trainer Workshop.
Attendance/Registration is FREE
