  1. National assessment of physicians'breast-feeding knowledge, attitudes, training, and experience.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    - Previous reports have demonstrated that physician counseling can improve rates of breast-feeding initiation and duration but suggest that physicians are ill-prepared for this role.

    It is unclear whether residency training for pediatricians, obstetrician/gynecologists, and family physicians provides the knowledge and skills necessary for effective breast-feeding promotion.

    Design

    - Survey.

    Participants

    - A national random sample of 3115 residents and 1920 practicing physicians in pediatrics, obstetrics/gynecology, and family medicine.

    Outcomes

    - Assessment of breast-feeding knowledge, attitudes, training, and experience.

    Results

    - Overall response rate was 68%. All groups demonstrated significant deficits in knowledge of breast-feeding benefits and clinical management ; for example, less than 50% of residents chose appropriate clinical management for a breast-fed jaundiced infant or a breast abscess.

    Practicing physicians performed slightly better, but still more than 30% chose incorrect advice for mothers with low milk supply.

    Only 55% of senior residents recalled even one instance of precepting related to breast-feeding, and less than 20% had demonstrated breast-feeding techniques at least five times during residency.

    Regarding preparation for breast-feeding counseling, more than 50% of all practicing physicians rated their residency training as inadequate.
