AbstractBreast milk provides optimal nutrition for babies and exhibits short and long-term health benefits for mothers and babies. Comparing the breastfeeding figures worldwide, Hong Kong has lower breastfeeding rates compared with other developed countries. Clinically and locally, inadequate skill support from nurses decreases breastfeeding rates. This thesis introduces evidenced-based guidelines of breastfeeding focused on skill training for improving duration and exclusiveness of breastfeeding. Based on available evidence, the guidelines aim to improve breastfeeding rates. The guidelines focus on skill training (position and attachment) as major component. Transferability and feasibility to apply the guidelines clinically was assessed. Lastly, an implementation plan was discussed.
