Abstract:

Reading let alone critically analyzing a research article can be quite intimidating to a non-researcher lactation consultant. How many lactation consultants find a research only to read the abstract, introduction, and conclusion to skip over the parts of the article they do not understand? Lactation consultants must provide evidence-based, ethical care to mothers, their baby, and their family. Lactation consultants can be instrumental and part of a multi-disciplinary research team. This presentation will help demystify research articles by providing ten practical tips for the non-researcher IBCLC. Not only will the lactation consultant feel more confident about reading the research article but the presentation will offer a great review of research concepts that are included in the IBLCE exam blueprint and prepare exam candidates for the IBLCE exam.
