Roman LA, Raffo JE, & Meghea CI. Maternal perceptions of help from home visits by nurse-community health worker teams. Am J Public Health. 2012;104(4):643-645.
Maternal Perceptions of Help from Home Visits by Nurse – Community Health Worker Teams examines data from a home visiting trial to assess the attitude of low-income mothers toward services received by nurses versus a nurse-CHW team. The study showed that more mothers that utilized a nurse-CHW team reported getting help in all categories assessed. Health education was the most important service that both groups received from the health professionals they were working with. More women in the nurse-CHW team reported receiving psychosocial assistance.
