ORIGINAL INTERVENTION SAMPLE
During the field study, participants were eligible to receive services from pregnancy until they reached their 20th birthday. Family life education classes were held on a bi-weekly basis for the duration of the program.
Your team of providers should include physicians, nurses, social workers, health educators and additional staff as needed. In the field study, which served 498 mothers, the staff consisted of a team of physicians (drawn from a rotating pool of 2 pediatricians and 1 or 2 ob-gyns), 3 registered nurses and 6 nurses' aides, 6 social workers, 2 male counselors, 2 health educators, 1 coordinating manager and 6 to 8 clerical assistants. Clergy were also available as needed. In 1984, the program also began recruiting peer counselors to offer presentations in the waiting room. During the field study, the coordinating manager held regular weekly meetings to train the staff. Additionally, each group of service providers (e.g., physicians, social workers, health educators) held their own meetings to discuss training issues particular to their specialty.
