Mastitis, particularly poorly-managed mastitis, has a major impact on breastfeeding duration. Effective management and prevention of re-occurrence requires adequate understanding of the different causes of mastitis and knowledge of appropriate strategies and therapies. 

Contrary to popular belief, mastitis is not synonymous with infection. In many cases there is no infection, hence the importance of appropriate clinical management that allows for a distinction between infective mastitis and other causes of inflammation of lactating breast tissue. Careful management can avoid the use of unnecessary antibiotic exposure.

In this lecture, naturopath and lactation consultant Dawn Whitten, covers the important role herbal medicines and nutritional treatments, including specific probiotics, can play in the treatment and prevention of mastitis. Dawn's presentation will help give you a clear understanding of the practical management strategies of mastitis, as well as good referral practice.

Lecture length ~60 mins. Audio-visual lecture counts towards annual CPE requirements.
