Description:

Now in its third edition, Breastfeeding Management for the Clinician: Using the Evidence is a trusted compendium on breastfeeding for the practicing clinician. It provides a research-based approach to breastfeeding care by including literature reviews while covering the incidence, etiology, risk factors, prevention, prognosis and implications, interventions, expected outcomes, care plans, and clinical algorithms. Expanded to include new approaches to solving common and uncommon breastfeeding problems, the Third Edition discusses the political and social landscape of breastfeeding including new state and Federal laws and policies related to breastfeeding. Also explained and clarified are new revelations about infant sucking mechanics as seen under ultrasound presented as a combination of vacuum and compression.Breastfeeding Management for the Clinician: Using the Evidence, Third Edition provides both the problem solving approach busy clinicians need to resolve issues encountered in everyday practice and the evidence-based foundation they need to impact positive change in the workplace.
