5119.0 CDC Maternity Practices in Infant Nutrition and Care (mPINC) Survey: 2009 Results and Practical Applications for States, Hospitals, and Researchers

Wednesday, November 10, 2010: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
This session highlights the CDC Maternity Practices in Infant Nutrition and Care (mPINC) survey and ways it can be used by states, hospitals, and researchers to improve breastfeeding and maternity practices. The CDC will present national- and state-level results of the 2009 mPINC survey. In addition, case studies from two states (Massachusetts and Indiana) will be presented to provide participants with information about how to plan and implement a breastfeeding/maternity practices summit. Another presentation will highlight how mPINC survey results are being used in California to integrate maternity practices into hospital quality improvement initiatives. Ways that the mPINC survey can be used in research will also be provided, including a presentation examining the extent to which US hospital policies are supportive of breastfeeding, and an example of how North Carolina hospitals’ breastfeeding-related maternity practices are associated with women’s abilities to achieve their personal breastfeeding goals.
Session Objectives: 1. Demonstrate knowledge of the CDC Maternity Practices in Infant Nutrition and Care (mPINC) survey and important components of breastfeeding-related maternity practices. 2. Identify ways the CDC mPINC survey and its results can be used by states, hospitals, or birth centers to improve breastfeeding-related maternity practices. 3. Discuss results of the 2009 CDC mPINC survey.
