Evidence based practice is considered the gold standard for lactation care, but what do we do when there's little to no evidence? As care providers working with families with infants, there is often a lack of research for interventions because research studies would be unethical or hard to manage. Join our panel of experts to talk about what is meant by evidence based care, the different levels of evidence, how to practice evidence-based care when research is lacking and how we can help to further develop the available evidence for what we do in clinical practice by noticing patterns and gathering and recording information.
