Materials and forms to support implementation
Service delivery forms
Mentor mothers completed biweekly contact sheets to monitor their progress with each participant. Coordinators reviewed these forms and contacted the mentor mothers with any concerns.
Domestic violence was measured using the Composite Abuse Scale, and depression was measured using the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale.
In addition to services available in English, MOSAIC was provided in Vietnamese through a bilingual mentor coordinator and mentor mothers to participants recruited from four Vietnamese general practice clinicians (GPs).
Coordinator reports and mentor contact forms were collected and reviewed every two weeks by the coordinator.
