 About the Workshop Leader
Pam Heselev is a maternal & child health nurse/ lactation consultant who has
worked extensively with babies experiencing feeding difficulties due to
positional/tonal problems. She has her own practice as a lactation consultant and
educator. Pam has had many years’ experience successfully helping babies with
positional feeding problems both in private practice and in a large Melbourne
teaching hospital. She has conducted a trial of an assessment tool and treatment
program for these babies and is continuing her research in this area as part of a
Master of Health Science (Nursing) at Deakin University.

By the end of this workshop participants will:
    be able to assess infants presenting with feeding problems associated with
      positional/ tonal issues
    have an understanding of the causes of feeding problems related to
      positional issues
    be able to use the assessment tool in their clinical practice
    be able to initiate management of these infants using a simple treatment
      regime
    recognize when a baby needs further assessment and appropriate referral
      pathways
