Materials and forms to support implementation

Service delivery forms

Home visitors completed a referral, enrollment, and closure form for each family. Maternity care or child service coordinators, in conjunction with the MOWs, also developed and regularly updated an individualized plan of care for each family, and after each visit, MOWs completed a contact record form detailing the activities completed and the length of the visit. Before enrollment, mothers had to sign a letter of agreement for themselves and their children.

Assessment tools

Upon enrollment in the program, families were interviewed to collect sociodemographic data and information on health behaviors, barriers to health care, and levels of both formal and informal support available to the mother. Participants’ psychological functioning was assessed with the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale, the Perceived Stress Scale, and the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale.
