3. Résumé


«The present evaluation provided Quebec’s MSSS [Ministère de la santé et des services sociaux] a first detailed portrait of BFI compliance in hospitals, birthing centers, and CHCs [community health centers] across the province, based on the latest recommendations. Results available in different formats allowed each participating facility to compare itself to other facilities in the same region, to other regions and the province as a whole, and to BFI-designated facilities. The ultimate goal is to provide key players at the provincial, regional, and local levels with information that will assist them in bringing about policy and organizational changes required to progress toward achieving the international standards required for Baby-Friendly designation.»(p. 355)
