Samis Education Center University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, Oklahoma City, OK

BCEP is a comprehensive, self-paced program designed to teach health care providers consistent, accurate, and current breastfeeding information without leaving your home or workplace. This program is designed for use by those who care for mothers and their babies from conception through the first year of life. This includes physicians, lactation consultants, hospital nurses, clinic nurses, public health nurses, WIC counselors and dieticians. The program is an effective option for staff education to address topics required to implement the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative, or to understand in greater detail how to sustain optimal breastfeeding.

The self study program is guided by trainers who have attended a BCEP seminar to provide them with the information and skills to facilitate learning at your work site. Each person taking the program has a program book. The trainer works with staff to set target dates for working through the material, schedule demonstrations on the skills in the program, and tracks progress of each participant through the program.

OBRC will be offering BCEP’s training curriculum, and self-paced study guide books are available for purchase for education of your staff. The purchase cost for these self-paced study guide books are $100 per book. If you are interested in attending a training or have a trainer and want to purchase BCEP’s self- guided study books for education of your staff, please email us at obrc@ouhsc.edu.

Seminar cost: $275
