  20. 20. breastfeeding champion training
  21. 21. Breastfeeding Champion Training • Offered fall 2014 in lieu of Symposium- Sept 13 & 27 • 16-hour curriculum offered over 2 Saturdays () that trains office nurses to perform optimal breastfeeding telephone triage and basic in-person breastfeeding support. Participants will receive breastfeeding triage tools that are easily adapted for electronic medical record systems. • BCSCW offered scholarships to 3 members of the African American Breastfeeding Alliance of Dane County
  22. 22.
  23. 23. BCSCW Board Members, Anne Eglash and Laura Berger, worked with UW students to evaluate the BF Champion Training.
  24. 24. Overall, respondents were positive about the training experience. Many respondents found the training so helpful that they would appreciate further training to maintain up-to-date practices. In addition, there was concern among participants regarding workplace consistency. Many felt that other professionals in their work environments were giving breastfeeding mothers advice that was in conflict with what they learned in the Breast Feeding Champion Training. Finally, some professionals have not had the opportunity to use the Triage Tools, and others express that the administration and others they work with are barriers to their use of the Triage Tools. Analyzing these results, we recommend that the Milk Mob formulate additional training and informational sessions for interested Breastfeeding Champion veterans. Also, we believe that the creation and distribution of literature related to the training would be helpful to professionals that did not attend the training. If such materials were given to participants upon their completion of the training, they could distribute it at their place of work to ensure a consistent message is given to breastfeeding mothers. Finally, it may be useful to reevaluate the Triage Tools and tailor them to different professions so each participant can feel more confident using them.
