Interpretation of Breastfeeding Research for Physicians
Get the skills you need to evaluate and apply lactation research.
Lactation professionals are increasingly being asked to practice evidence-based care. But understanding, evaluating, and applying breastfeeding research can be a challenge. Join Kathleen Buckley, PhD, RN, IBCLC for a thorough-yet-accessible discussion of both the big concepts and the nitty gritty of scientific research as it relates to lactation. Buckley covers concepts like research methodology, levels of evidence, validity and reliability, and data analysis in easy-to-understand terms you can remember and apply. The course is packed full of examples of lactation-specific research to illustrate the concepts taught. Hands-on challenges invite the learner to apply new information by reading and evaluating recent breastfeeding studies. Get the tools you need to feel confident practicing evident-based care. A faculty member at the University of Maryland School of Nursing, Buckley has led several lactation research studies as a primary investigator, focusing on long-term breastfeeding, cultural practices around breastfeeding, and the use of technology in breastfeeding support.
