5171.0 Breastfeeding: Clinical Programs
Wednesday, November 11, 2009: 12:30 PM
Breastfeeding is an important contributor to child health, but many infants, especially in disadvantaged populations, are not breastfed. This session looks at barriers and promoters to breastfeeding among breastfeeding women with particular attention to low income or other disadvantaged women. The focus is on clinical practices at the individual and institutional level that could be modified to provide better support to breastfeeding.
Session Objectives: Discuss how clinical practices may undermine successful breastfeeding. Describe the strategies to promote breastfeeding hospitals and clinical settings. Discuss practice and policy implications for various clinical settings serving different sub-populations of breastfeeding women.
