Hispanic Women Successfully Navigate Computer-Based Bilingual Breastfeeding Education Program
Research supported by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) evaluated the usability of a computerized learning program to provide breastfeeding education to Hispanic women residing in rural areas. “An interactive, bilingual touch screen program to promote breastfeeding among Hispanic rural women: usability study,” recently appeared in JMIR Research Protocols. Usability evaluation participants were asked to complete a set of tasks while explaining out loud what they were thinking. They also answered questions regarding their experience with the program. Participants were able to complete the assigned tasks without help and reported a positive experience.
