This full-group analysis in this study, which HomVEE examined, compared families who initiated Nurses for Newborns prenatally to families who initiated the program postpartum. The study included an additional 28 subgroup analyses, analyzing different dosages of Nurses for Newborns (measured by number of visits), impacts among subpopulations, or comparing subprograms within Nurses for Newborns. HomVEE did not rate the subgroup analyses because, at the time of this review, they were not replicated in two or more studies using non-overlapping analytic study samples.

Study Registration Identifier: None found.

Study registration was assessed by HomVEE beginning with the 2014 review.
