Wednesday 12 May 13.00 – 14.00

This month we address the topic of medicine use in women who are breastfeeding, including a discussion around COVID-19 vaccination during breastfeeding.

In this webinar you will hear from specialist pharmacists from the UK Drugs in Lactation Advisory Service, an NHS service provided as part of the Specialist Pharmacy Service.  They will cover:

  • why the topic is important for healthcare professionals
  • why telling the mother to stop breastfeeding isn’t in itself without risks
  • what resources are available to you
  • commonly asked questions.

Through specific examples, you will also hear about how UKDILAS create their advice and about our newly launched SPS webpages.  These have been designed to help you through the process of researching recommended resources, undertaking a risk assessment and giving informed advice in a clinical area where there is often a lack of robust clinical evidence.

Presented by:

UK Drugs in Lactation Advisory Service and Midlands and East Medicines Advice Service (Midlands)
