Abstract:
This presentation describes the process of building a program of research in breastfeeding as a model for effective and sustainable clinical-academic partnership in a university-affiliated, tertiary care hospital in downtown Montreal. Since 2004, the hospital's Division of Maternal-Child Health's clinical leadership team have supervised eight Master's in Nursing students in research and clinical projects related to breastfeeding. These projects have been jointly defined by students and clinical advisors, in consultation with the hospital's multidisciplinary breastfeeding committee. In accordance with the WHO/UNICEF "Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative", the projects have largely focused on examining policies and practices known to improve breastfeeding-related patient outcomes. The presentation describes how this series of successive clinical and research projects, each of which was built on the findings of the previous, have contributed to a number of important outcomes. These outcomes include: strengthening interprofessional collaboration; creating a learning environment on units within the Division; increasing the academic profile of the department of nursing; increasing adherence to evidence-based practices; improving patient breastfeeding-related outcomes; and increasing recruitment of Master's-prepared nurses. In brief, the presentation outlines the multiple ways in which thoughtful, well-designed, ongoing, clinical-academic partnerships have the potential to advance clinical practice and ultimately improve patient outcomes.
