Educating Physicians in their Communities (EPIC)

Educating Physicians in their Communities (EPIC) Educating Physicians in their Communities (Immunization Education) Educating Physicians In their Communities (EPIC®) was launched in 2000 to provide private physicians with free, quality immunization education.

The program ensures the availability of current requirements and recommendations to the ever increasing number of immunizations. EPIC was modeled after the Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics' Immunization Education Program. In the summer of 2007 GAAAP launched a new Breastfeeding EPIC Program.

Check out this free clinical reference from IABLE!

IABLE has a new clinical tool!

Trash the Pump and Dump (TPD) is a free clinical reference that highlights the most concerning substances, medications, and infectious illnesses for lactation.

The goal is that if it is not in this list, don't worry, it's fine. So, rather than searching to find out if an exposure is safe during lactation, just check the TPD to see if it is on the list!

It's one more strategy to stop the advice of pumping and dumping when unnecessary!

TPD can be viewed as either a website or a mobile app. Check out the website here: https://trashthepumpanddump.org/
(and see the HELP page for mobile app installation)
