Allattamento al seno e personale sanitario: La formazione è efficace?

Translated title of the contribution: Breastfeeding training: Is it effective?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Author reviews the existing studies assessing the effectiveness of breastfeeding training programmes for health professionals. Two studies are more thoroughly examined, both assessing training programmes based on the 18-hour course proposed by UNICEF. The first programme has been carried out in Bielorussia, the second in Italy. Both were controlled studies. Results were positive in both cases. An evaluation component should be included in all the ongoing training programmes on breastfeeding.
