INTEGRATED RESEARCH METHODS (MIXED METHOD RESEARCH DESIGN)

Abstract

Research designs are procedures for collecting, analyzing, interpreting, and reporting data in research studies. They represent different models for doing research, and these models have distinct names and procedures associated with them. Research designs are useful, because they help guide the methods decisions that researchers must make during their studies and set the logic by which they make interpretations at the end of their studies. Once the researcher has identified that the research problem calls for a mixed methods approach and reflected on the philosophical and theoretical foundations of the study, the next step is to choose a specific design that best fits the problem and the research questions in the study.

BREAST MILK BANK-SAVES GENERATION

[Year:2015] [Month:May-August] [Volume:8] [Number:2] [Pages:8] [Pages No:17 - 24]

Keywords: Pasteurized donor Human Milk, Very Low Birth Weight, Human Milk Banking

PDF  |  DOI: 10.5005/pjn-8-2-17  |  Open Access |  How to cite  | 

Abstract

Breastfeeding is the best method of infant feeding because human milk continues to be the only milk which is tailor-made and uniquely suited to the human infant. All mothers should be encouraged to breast-feed their infants. When a mother, for some reason, is unable to feed her infant directly, her breast milk should be expressed and fed to the infant. If mother\'s own milk is unavailable or insufficient, the next best option is to use pasteurized donor human milk (PDHM). India faces its own unique challenges, having the highest number of low birth weight babies, and significant mortality and morbidity in very low birth weight (VLBW) population. Human Milk Banking Association should be constituted, and human milk banks should be established across the country. National coordination mechanism should be developed with a secretariat and technical support to follow-up on action in States. Budgetary provisions should be made available for the activities.
