TEMPLATE DESIGN © 208 ww.PosterPresentations.com The Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative was launched in 1991 and is an effort by UNICEF and the WHO to ensure that maternity facilities acros the globe are centers that suport and encourage breastfeeding. A maternity facility can be designated 'baby-friendly' when it does not acept fre or low-cost formula, feeding bottles or teats, and has implemented 10 specific steps to suport sucesful breastfeeding. Two of the ten steps are: 1.  Have a written breastfeeding policy   that is routinely comunicated to  al staff 2.  Train al staff in skils necesary to  implement this policy This purpose of this project was to develop a training tool that could be used with VCH staff to inform and educate them about the Infant Feeding Policy in an effort to gain Baby Friendly status for the VCH region. This includes staff not providing direct patient care and non-health care workers. •  This is a broad category that includes clerical workers, food service workers, housekeping staff and janitorial staff; this group has very broad learning neds and education levels. An educational online (modle) module neded to be developed that could be used for al non-health care workers. This online education module wil be roled out in the near future as part of the existing orientation package that al new employes of Vancouver Coastal Health complete. 1.  To familiarize ourselves with the research around WHO’s Baby-Friendly Initiative and breastfeeding. 2.  To develop  a online module that could be used to educate non-health care staff to the Infant Feeding Policy and help explain their role in this initiative. a.  This included using apropriate language, sourcing out apropriate photographs, meting with the breastfeeding subcomittee as wel as the IT department. 1.  Met with Practice Partners and Faculty to review background, purpose and goals of the project as wel as our role in the larger Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative.  2.  Research focused on the World Health Organization Baby Friendly Guidelines, background literature on benefits of breastfeeding (Anotated Bibliography) and strategies on how to create education material at an apropriate reading and comprehension level for our target audience.  We also explored the Modle platform to gain a better understanding of the program.   3.  Metings with Practice Partners to determine the key points to be included in the PowerPoint presentation as wel as aesthetic goals. 4.  Delegation of subtopics betwen students and initial development of PowerPoint slides. 5.  Faculty check-ins where we focused on both the proces of project development and acuracy of breastfeeding content. 6.  Met with Regional Manager for Distributed Learning at VCH to discus use of Modle Platform. Post-meting comunication with practice partners regarding the difficulties of using the Modle Platform. Plan is adjusted to create a PowerPoint which can later be embeded into a Modle. 7.  Continual editing of PowerPoint with advice of Practice Partners. Issues included: obtaining consent for al photos used, asesing advantages and disadvantages of using animation, ensuring al language is apropriate for target audience, ensuring al photos are safe (non-offensive, no physical safety hazards in the background, variety of populations are represented) and ensuring al key points and ideas are acurately presented using minimal wording and slides. 8.  Final editing and completion of PowerPoint.  1.  Clinical Faculty: Joy Johnson and Julie Lapinsky 2.  Practice Partners:  a.  Leslie Mils and Radhika Bhagat (Breast Feeding Education Sub-Comittee Chairs b.  Patty Keith (Regional Director of Planing for Maternal and Child Services at VCH) 3.  Marketing Student Expertise: Jake Cham 4.  Regional Manager for Distributed Learning at VCH: Carie Spencer 5.  Feeding of Healthy Term Infants - Policy and Guidelines (VCH) 6.  Sumary of the International Code of Marketing of Breast milk Substitutes and Relevant World Health Asembly Resolutions (WHO) 7.  The Ten Steps to Sucesful Breastfeeding (WHO) 8.  The Seven Point Plan for the Protection, Promotion and Suport of Breastfeeding in Comunity Health Services (WHO) 9.  Breastfeeding Definitions and Data Colection Periods: Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative of Canada 10. Writing Health Information for Families: A guide to creating Patient Education Materials The outcome or “deliverable” from this project is an education module to inform non-health care providers about the Infant Feeding Policy of Vancouver Coastal Health and their role in implementing this policy as a non-health care provider. 1.  Evidence-based practice in suporting families and infant feeding in order to optimize health outcomes 2.  The proces of creating a regional health care policy to better suport families and infant feeding 3.  The steps required in order to create an effective education module 4.  Strategies to provide effective health education to our target audience 5.  Effective comunication with various players in order to effectively complete the objective (Breastfeeding Education Sub-comittee members, IT suport person etc.) 6.  A variety of comunication methods: face-to-face metings, teleconferencing, emailing 7.  Flexibility and effective time management in order to met deadlines 8.  Effective team work  9.  Delegation amongst student team for effective use of time 10. Awarenes of a variety of resources available in creating an education module  11.  How to create a project grid for optimal project planing 12. How to create a SWOT analysis and Stakeholder analysis  13. How to research and compile findings into an Anotated Bibliography 1.  Presenting final version of module to Breastfeeding Education Sub-Comittee and management for aproval 2.  Focus groups to ases effectivenes of module with further editing as needed 3.  Posible creation of a variety of forms of module: Pamphlet, PowerPoint Presentation, embeded into larger orientation module etc. 4.  Module as part of larger orientation for al Vancouver Coastal Health employees Vancouver Coastal Health has a goal of becoming a completely Baby Friendly region.
