Description

We used data from a home visiting trial to examine low-income women’s perceptions of services
received from nurses (the community care [CC] group) and from a nurse-community health worker (CHW) team. More mothers in the nurse-CHW group than in the CC group reported receiving help in all of the categories assessed. For both groups, assistance with health education ranked highest among the types of assistance received. A higher percentage of women in the nurse-CHW group than the CC group reported that they received psychosocial help. (author abstract)
