Audit Workshop

This one day workshop equips infant feeding advisors and other key workers to audit the care their facility provides for breastfeeding mothers and babies against the Baby Friendly Initiative standards.

All aspects of the auditing process are considered and the audit tool developed by the Baby Friendly Initiative is used as an example to enable participants to explore issues of questionnaire design, sampling, interviewing, scoring, presentation and interpretation of results, and action planning to improve care and maintain progress.

Mastery of the use of the audit tool by key staff members enables healthcare providers to audit the care they provide, identify training needs, evaluate interventions and monitor progress.

The course offers in three different formats:

  • Maternity
  • Neonatal
  • Health visiting & Childrens Centres

Who is this course for?

Participants at the audit workshops are expected to have attended the two-day course in Breastfeeding and Relationship building (and provide a certificate of attendance).
