Maternal perceptions of a breastfeeding clinic: A protocol for a service evaluation
There is increasing interest in the collection of data from routine practice. This provides information from a key area of Evidence Based Practice, the patient’s point of view. All chiropractic offices, no matter how small, can participate in improving the understanding of their patient’s viewpoint. Nowhere is this more important than in collecting the mother’s perception when treating the infant with suboptimal breastfeeding. This protocol for a service evaluation is presented so that other clinicians can see that this type of research can be implemented into routine practice and lead to a better understanding of what is important to the mother and her satisfaction rate with the clinical encounter.
