In 2015, the Infant Feeding Surveillance Pilot Study, a Locally Driven Collaborative Project (LDCP), resulted in the creation of two recommended options for infant feeding surveillance tools and methods for public health units. One follow-up LDCP Knowledge Exchange project was completed in 2017 which provided guidance to analyze data collected using the retrospective 6-month questionnaire.
This webinar provides an overview of a second LDCP Knowledge Exchange project that provides guidance to analyze data collected using the prospective questionnaires. Their preliminary work, the results of a PHU survey, is posted here.
Hilary and Jessica will describe the rationale and methods of the project, including the stakeholder engagement activities. They will also describe the newly-developed analytic guidance resources, including data dictionaries, core indicator/flowchart documents and statistical syntax in four software languages that will soon be available for use by public health units.
By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
1. To describe the rationale and methods of the project.
2. To present the tools/analytic guidance.
3. To discuss how the analytic guidance can be implemented by public health units as they collect their own infant feeding surveillance data.
