Improving Maternity Care Practices: Raising Your mPINC Score

Time-frame: 60-120
CERP: yes

In 2007, all US birthing facilities received a survey from the CDC asking questions regarding maternity care feeding practices and policies related to breastfeeding. In 2008, the CDC sent facility-specific scores to responding hospitals assigning them a score based on how close they came to evidence-based best practices. This talk covers how to use your facility’s score as a tool to create a more supportive environemnt for breastfeeding families.
