Quality improvement changes or education programs can come across many different barriers as time continues. One barrier that could occur with my education program as time passes is that the education is not as updated with the current resources available to assist the new parents. New gadgets to assist with breastfeeding and soothing are constantly being put on the market so my education could be behind the times in 6 months, a year, etc… Another potential barrier could be the change in frequently asked questions. It appears that throughout all postpartum and newborn time periods, similar questions do arise however there could be new questions that require answers that would not be on the current education pamphlet.
The best way to continue the effectiveness of this education program for the OB clinic includes continuously updating the education, receiving feedback from the community and utilizing knowledge from the frequently asked questions to make the changes that are necessary to assist with postpartum and newborn questions.
