Achieving Sustainability workshops have been introduced by UNICEF Baby Friendly Initiative to support services in incorporating Baby Friendly standards.
The one-day workshop will explore four key standards – leadership, culture, monitoring and progression, and provide training materials, to use with managers, explaining the use of Baby Friendly standards.
It will also look at everyday challenges and how to overcome them through time management and analysis.
The interactive workshop is tailored for services at any stage of implementing Baby Friendly standards, from certificate of commitment or commitment to full accreditation.
UNICEF’s Baby Friendly Initiative’s Achieving Sustainability does not describe clinical care of babies, but provides a foundation on which good care is built on.
Baby Friendly Initiative’s Achieving Sustainability doesn’t aim to create more work or extra complexity, but an organised roadmap of development in maintaining standards in the short and long term.
UNICEF hopes that the Achieving Sustainability standards provide more consistent and sustainable care for babies, women and their families.
The workshop will be held at UNICEF House in London on various dates, depending on availability.
Places are £280 per person.
Achieving Sustainability standards was first introduced in November 2016. From July 2017, services that are already accredited as Baby Friendly will be eligible for re-assessment for Gold Baby Friendly accreditation.
