MORALES PEREZ, Viridiana; RAMOS REYNA, Angélica  and  LOEZA ANGELES, Iram. Effectiveness of an educational strategy on breastfeeding in resident doctors of the General Zone Hospital with Family Medicine (HGZ MF2) Irapuato, Guanajuato during the year 2019. Dilemas contemp. educ. política valores [online]. 2021, vol.8, n.spe1, 00010.  Epub Mar 26, 2021. ISSN 2007-7890.

A research work was carried out to evaluate the effectiveness of an educational strategy on breastfeeding in resident physicians of the HGZ MF2 Irapuato, Gto., during the year 2019. It was a quasi-experimental study in 56 1st-year resident physicians of the specialties of pediatrics, internal medicine, surgery, and family medicine through non-probability sampling. Inferential statistics were analyzed using the Wilcoxon test for dependent samples, registering an increase in the post-evaluation with 91.76% (SD ± 4.88), observing a statistically significant increase (p = 0.001) in the knowledge of the resident doctors. The implementation of the educational strategy was observed effective with a significant improvement regarding the benefits of breastfeeding.
