A Pilot Intervention to Strengthen Coordination Between Primary Care and Prenatal and Early Childhood Home Visiting for Vulnerable Families in Baltimore
Beth Barnet, Margo DeVoe, and Elena Klyushnenkova
Type of Product
Coordination between primary care and evidence-based prenatal/early childhood home visiting is not well studied. This poster describes a mixed methods pilot study to test an intervention to improve the coordination between primary care and home visiting for high-risk pregnant women and young children. The intervention provides 3-5 years of longitudinal support, psychosocial assessments, and parenting education. Findings showed that coordination knowledge, beliefs, and behaviors increased but remained low. A dedicated care coordinator and workflow training is necessary but not sufficient.
Data Collection Methods
- Focus groups
