21st Breastfeeding Seminar

IASO’s Nursing Directorate is organizing the 21st Breastfeeding Seminar, from 30-11-2015 to 04-12-2015, which is addressed to Healthcare Professionals and held under the auspices of the Ministry of Health and UNICEF. The Seminar will award 24 CME/CPD credits points. It comprises 32 hours of theory and 8 hours of hands-on practice, based on the recommendations of World Health Organization (WHO) and participation is free of charge.

The aim of the seminar is training on issues pertaining to support, promotion and advancement of Breastfeeding. To register for the seminar, please contact IASO’s Nursing Directorate Secretariat at +30 210 618 4155 & 210 618 4199.

Acknowledging a mother’s priceless offer towards her child and at the same time the indefeasible right of a newborn to breastfeeding – which is the optimal way for exclusive feeding for the first six months of the infant’s life – we, at IASO, put significant efforts in the awareness, consciousness, education and promotion of breastfeeding and try to apply the Ten Steps to its Success.

Namely, we:

  1. Observe a Written Policy according to UNICEF’s and WHO recommendations.
  2. Routinely educate all our Nursing Staff by organizing regular seminars aimed at the acquisition of all the necessary knowledge and skills for the observance of the aforementioned Policy.
  3. Hold Childbirth Education Classes on Breastfeeding in order to timely and responsibly educate and train all future mothers on Breastfeeding and its benefits.
  4. Take care for the early initiation of breastfeeding, thusly establishing lactation and fortifying the emotional bonding between a mother and her infant.
  5. Advise all mothers who must be separated from their newborn for Medical reasons (admission to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) to continue producing breast milk so that the newborn receives it at the earliest opportunity.
  6. Do not feed the newborns on any other type of food or liquid apart from breast milk, unless otherwise dictated, e.g. on medical grounds or the mother’s wish.
  7. All mothers can have their newborn stay in the same room with them (“Rooming-in Practice”).
  8. We encourage all new mothers to feed their baby whenever their baby longs for it in order to achieve free and unlimited Breastfeeding.
  9. We do not give pacifiers or feeding bottles to the breastfeeding newborn.
  10. We support breastfeeding with a 24/7 Helpline for all mothers discharged from IASO (tel: +30 210 618 4000).

World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF, acknowledging the value of Breastfeeding, established the Initiative “Baby-friendly Hospitals”, by setting the Ten Steps to a Successful Breastfeeding.

The Department of Pediatric Cardiac Surgery at IASO Children’s Hospital and Athens Heart Surgery Institute, under the direction of the world-renowned Pediatric Cardiac Surgeon, Dr. Giorgos Sarris, holder of multiple scientific distinctions (Harvard MD, PhD, FACC, FACS, FAHA, FCTS, FETCS), is now the only Pediatric Cardiac Surgery Center in Greece certified according to the European Congenital Heart Surgeons Association and numbers amongst the few certified Pediatric Cardiac Surgery Centers throughout Europe.

High quality healthcare services are the main priority for IASO Group. Dr. Sarris, Chief of Athens Heart Surgery Institute, who, as of July 2013, has undertaken the establishment and direction of the Department of Pediatric Cardiac Surgery at IASO Children’s Hospital, has been applying a strict quality assurance program on all pediatric cardiac surgeries performed by his team, for many consecutive years. Within the context of this multilateral program, the data of every pediatric cardiac surgery performed at the Department of Pediatric Cardiac Surgery at IASO Children’s Hospital by Dr. Sarris and his team, are unfailingly reported to the Congenital Database of the European Congenital Heart Surgeons Association.

Even more significant and completely indicative of the exceptionally high-level surgeries performed by Dr. Sarris is that, like only a handful other European pediatric cardiac surgeons, he voluntarily submits the results of his surgeries for inspection by competent independent reviewers of the European Congenital Heart Surgeons Association, in order to assure the quality of the surgeries and the accuracy of the statistical results. The aforementioned practice is a standard voluntary procedure for Dr. Sarris’ team, and this certifies and confirms his acknowledgement by the entire scientific community for the high-level pediatric cardiac surgeries he performs.

The intensive procedure of investigating and certifying the surgical results delivered by Dr. Sarris’ team was successfully completed and, on 3 November 2015, Dr. Zdzislaw Tobota, Technical Director at the ECHSA Congenital Database, awarded Dr. Sarris the relevant Certificates of the European Congenital Heart Surgeons Association for the Accreditation of Pediatric Cardiac Surgeries.

At IASO Children’s Hospital, thanks to our top medical and fully trained nursing staff, your child’s health is in the best hands! In this state-of-the-art pediatric hospital, in a pleasant, friendly, peaceful but primarily safe environment, specially designed to treat pediatric cardiac patients and accommodating cutting-edge medical equipment as well as a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), one of the most sophisticated ICUs in Europe, our only concern is to treat our young patients in the best way possible. With the valuable assistance of the Emergency Department, IASO Children’s Hospital stands by you at whatever time, to take care of what you hold most dear…your child’s health.
