Constellation Steward: American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP): Kera Beskin
This group was first convened in June 2016 with funding support from the Centers of Disease Control & Prevention. The collaborative group of organizations makes up the USBC-affiliated Physician Education & Training Constellation. This project concluded in 2023.
Physician Education and Training on Breastfeeding Action Plan
The AAP developed a comprehensive action plan that included recommendations for addressing:
1. Gaps in breastfeeding training and education for physicians, with special emphasis on underserved populations.
2. Training to support the safe implementation of evidence-based maternity practices supportive of breastfeeding.
Culture Plan Development
The constellation participants developed a plan to create a culture of support for breastfeeding within the medical community, emphasizing support for breastfeeding medical practitioners at all levels of training as a part of medical practitioner wellness.
Model Policy Implementation Learning Collaboratives
The AAP and AAFP facilitated and supported processes to identify medical schools, residency and fellowship programs, clinics, hospitals, and healthcare systems that implemented AAFP’s Breastfeeding and Lactation Policy for Medical Trainees within their institution as appropriate for their setting and resources.
