EPIC BREASTFEEDING PROGRAM
The EPIC Breastfeeding Program offers peer-to-peer breastfeeding education to physician’s offices, hospitals and residency programs. Our goal is to educate physicians and their staff on breastfeeding and inform them as to why they play a critical role in a woman’s decision to breastfeed and to continue breastfeeding. We provide information on evidence-based standards of how to encourage, promote and support breastfeeding. We also give out information on how to access lactation and support services in the community and free resources for patient education.
EPIC (Educating Physicians & Practices in their Communities) Programs offers FREE, peer-to-peer educational programs to Georgia physicians, nurses, and office staff in Immunization and Breastfeeding. Programs are presented in your practice by a physician-led team of trained professionals. CME credit hours are available for participating physicians and contact hours for participating nurses!
Are you an immunization or breastfeeding expert? Do you enjoy sharing your knowledge with others? If you answered yes, you could become a trainer for EPIC. We provide training on the program curriculum, use of the program equipment (laptop and projector), a stipend for your time, and some great tips for presenting to adult learners.
EPIC IMMUNIZATION PROGRAM
The EPIC Immunization Program focuses on the epidemiology and prevention of vaccine preventable disease through proper scheduling and administration of vaccine across the lifespan. EPIC provides the most current ACIP recommendations for all vaccines and discusses the childhood, adolescent, and adult immunization schedules in detail. Other topics include proper administration, documentation, missed opportunities, school requirements and forms, Vaccines For Children (VFC) Program, vaccine safety, communicating risks, strategies to increase rates, storage and handling and more.
Due to social distancing efforts, we have adapted the delivery of our EPIC Immunization & Breastfeeding programs to virtual options in order to continue to offer your practice this important education! ~Stay Well!
The EPIC programs are presented FREE for Georgia physicians when it's most convenient for the practice. We send a team of trained professionals to your site along with free educational resources. Participants will receive between 1-2 continuing education credit hours.
