PSR: Guidelines for Developing and Writing Policy Statements on Medically Related Issues

Guidelines for Developing and Writing Policy Statements on Medically Related Issues

Position statements on breastfeeding and medically related issues by LLLI or any constituent entity will be issued only when adequate professional/medical review has been obtained. Potential medical and legal liability implications will be considered. The preference will be to refer to and rely on statements of global health organizations (such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and clinical protocols of professional organizations supportive of breastfeeding, such as the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine (ABM).

The LLLI Board Chair and the ED or designated staff person will approve LLLI position development and position statements prior to release. LLL entities that issue position statements will follow a similar procedure of consultation within LLL and approval by their governing council.
