iROC: Nurse Education Matters! Increasing Breastfeeding Rates at a Local Hospital

Investigating Research on Campus

Please be with us November 17th when Yasmine Kalkstein, Division of Social Sciences, presents Nurse Education Matters! Increasing Breastfeeding Rates at a Local Hospital.

Dr. Kalkstein will describe research undertaken at St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital in Newburgh with one of her students, a senior nursing major at MSMC. The project was developed in partnership with Jeanne Boydston, director of the Birth Center at St. Luke’s. Data was collected from nurses before and after they trained to become certified lactation counselors. The education seemed to create a cultural shift in the hospital, changing the perception, knowledge, and attitudes of nurses and patients regarding breastfeeding. A little intervention showed some interesting effects!

Yasmine L. Kalkstein is Associate Professor of Psychology in the Division of Social Sciences. She holds master’s and doctoral degrees in educational psychology from the University of Minnesota. Her work in recent years has delved into medical decision-making. Dr. Kalkstein’s initial collaboration with St. Luke's led to a service project called It Takes a Village where over 2,000 children's books and educational materials were distributed to new mothers. The work she’ll be presenting is her first research project with the hospital.

Nurse Education Matters! will take place in Kaplan Library room 218 in the Dominican Center. This event has been approved FYE credit as College Connection. Light refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there!
