Holly- They really should offer a class in your program on how to interpret scientific literature. It doesn’t look like you can actually do this on your own. People here have posted a few scientific studies that clearly show that this is not black and white and you refuse to answer their questions. What the WHO, the ACNM and the ICM do is interpret data that they see fit, and come up with a series of recommendations that may apply to the majority. Some of us don’t live in Africa. Most of us are well nourished. If I want to be treated like cattle, I will look for a vet.
I want evidence based practice to be used when I look for a provider. I want someone who is capable of understanding original research and can keep up with new literature, not just pointing to recommendations that may not apply to me as an individual or relying on outdated recommendations. As others have pointed out here, if you really follow evidence based practice, you should read the original peer review literature. Come on, you can do it! And if you need access to those pdfs people have mentioned, just pm me. I will be happy to share them with you.
