Peacock, Shelley, Stephanie Konrad, Erin Watson, Darren Nickel, and Nazeem Muhajarine. (2013). “Effectiveness of home visiting programs on child outcomes: a systematic review.” BMC public health 13, no. 1: 1

Motivation for inclusion:

Peacock et al. analyzed 21 randomized controlled trials and found that “home-visiting programs are limited in improving the lives of socially high-risk children who live in disadvantaged families.” They also noted that the relationship between mothers and visitors has received little attention in previous studies on the effectiveness of home visiting. This publication prompts us to investigate these relationships more deeply that it has been done in the past.
