  • High Fidelity Simulation Training


In this baby doll comparison study, clinical lactation specialists will complete two back-to-back video-based simulations (telesimulations) focused on newborn positioning and attachment. Study participants will interact with a standardized patient educator (SP) wearing the Lactation Simulation Model and using two baby dolls in a randomized order.

Study summary:

Identifying signs of effective newborn positioning and attachment is an essential skill for maternal-child care providers. No study has evaluated the effectiveness of commonly used baby dolls for teaching this skill. In this comparison study, clinical lactation specialists will be randomly assigned two baby dolls to evaluate in two back-to-back video-based simulations (telesimulations) with a standardized patient wearing the LiquidGoldConcept Lactation Simulation Model. Participants will complete a novel competency assessment using 3-second video clips to show specific components of positioning and attachment and evaluating whether any correction is needed and why or why not.


Inclusion Criteria: - Received IBCLC, CLC, FABM, or similar certification in clinical lactation - At least 2 years professional experience with breastfeeding patients - Work with lactating patients/clients at least monthly - Work with positioning and attachment at least weekly Exclusion Criteria: - n/a
