The expert team for the Human Milk Initiative - Well Baby Track has been working by conference call and email to determine measures, develop a data collection instrument and to create an action plan for this project. Letters will be sent out to all North Carolina hospitals with nurseries and copied to CNOs and medical directors, inviting them to participate in this initiative.  Each hospital will need to form a team consisting of, at a minimum, a nurse champion, a physician champion, and a senior hospital administrator.  Hospitals are encouraged to include other relevant team members such as staff nurses, nurse educators, patient representatives and performance improvement personnel.
