Health care provider’s perceptions of a newly revised eHealth breastfeeding resource for use in clinical practice to increase breastfeeding health literacy
Global breastfeeding rates are low, despite the World Health Organization’s breastfeeding recommendations. Health care providers are encouraged to provide education and support. Ehealth resources are increasingly being used to provide breastfeeding information to patients. The purpose of this project was to determine health care providers’ perceptions of a newly revised eHealth breastfeeding resource. This project followed a program evaluation approach and addressed the resources component of the logic model framework. Healthcare providers in Ontario were surveyed to determine their perceptions of the content, design and usability of a breastfeeding eHealth resource for use in clinical practice to increase breastfeeding health literacy and rates. The findings suggest that minimal revisions are needed to the resource and indicate that healthcare professionals found it acceptable for use in their clinical practice.
