Introducing CCHP-CP, a New Specialty Exam for Physicians, NPs, and PAs
The CCHP program has launched the Certified Correctional Health Professional-Clinical Provider exam.
ACOG has approved the endorsement of the revised position statement Breastfeeding in Correctional Settings. The position statement is now ACOG official clinical guidance.
The position statement addresses the unique issues surrounding breastfeeding for postpartum inmates in correctional settings. It states that, wherever possible and not precluded by security concerns, correctional facilities that house pregnant and postpartum women should devise systems to enable postpartum women to express breast milk for their babies and to breastfeed them directly.
