Nurse Home Visitation and the Prevention of Child Maltreatment (Workshop 122)
This workshop presents results from a 15-year follow-up of 320 families in the Elmira, New York randomized and controlled study of specific mechanisms and outcomes of the Nurse Home Visitation program. The findings suggest that nurse home visitation has had a long-term impact on the incidence and timing of child maltreatment and also has been successful in decreasing the negative effects of maltreatment when it did occur.
