"Power Tools for Coalitions" Webinars
The United States Breastfeeding Committee hosts this series of bi-monthly webinars as part of its training, technical assistance, and capacity building support for the network of breastfeeding coalitions across the United States. Webinars are held every two months (in odd numbered months) on the third Wednesday of the month from 2:00-3:30 p.m. ET.
Access to these webinars is open to all interested breastfeeding coalition members, as well as others involved in forming or leading nonprofit organizations in the breastfeeding field. Topic/speaker details are posted 1-2 weeks before each session on this page and in the Coalitions Learning Connection. The recordings and presentation materials from all past sessions are archived below.
NOTE: To streamline access, these webinars are set up in GotoWebinar as a series. You only need to register for the series once, and you will then receive auto-reminders of each session with the topic/speaker details. Even though you may not be able to attend every webinar session live, the series registration will still send you auto-reminders so that you have easy updates on the topic and links to the live webinar and archives.

Using mPINC as a Tool for Improvement
Jennifer Nelson, MD, MPH, FAAP
LCDR, U.S. Public Health Service
Infant Feeding Team/Nutrition Branch/CDC
CDC's biennial mPINC survey measures infant feeding practices in health care settings. The survey is sent to every U.S. registered birthing facility. The mPINC Benchmark Reports and State Reports provide facilities and states with their own mPINC data and highlight specific opportunities to improve mother-baby outcomes in order to more successfully meet national quality standards in perinatal care. In this Power Tools session, Dr. Jennifer Nelson will discuss findings from the 2015 national survey of Maternity Practices in Infant Nutrition and Care(mPINC). Participants will learn how state health departments and breastfeeding coalitions can use data from the mPINC surveys to facilitate their work with hospitals and birth centers in improving breastfeeding care.
