The Family-Nurse Partnership programme in England: Wave 1 implementation in toddlerhood & a comparison between Waves 1 and 2a of implementation in pregnancy and infancy [Executive summary]

This third report follows the first cohort of 1303 FNP clients in the 10 Wave 1 sites in England through to the end of the toddlerhood phase, from 12 to 24 months, focussing in particular on clients whose child had, or would on the basis of their expected due date at intake have reached 24 months at the time the data were extracted for analysis (mid-July 2010, N=1177). It should be noted that this group included 18 foetal deaths, three stillbirths and four child deaths. Of the 1177, 690 remained enrolled throughout the entire programme period, from early pregnancy to 24 months, so the most detailed information on programme delivery and client progress is available for those clients. In this phase the evaluation had four main aims; to determine: Whether FNP is being implemented with fidelity in England during the final toddlerhood phase? Whether FNP is acceptable in its entirety up to the time that children are 24 months of age--to young mothers, their partners and to Family Nurses? The nature of the experience of completing the programme for clients and for Family Nurses. Whether it is likely that FNP will benefit the women, children and families in receipt of FNP? Information comes from the standardised data forms completed by Family Nurses (FNs) in the delivery of FNP; from in-depth interviews with all the FNs who have worked on the programme since its introduction; in-depth investigation of four FNP teams; detailed work diaries completed by FNs over a two week period; interviews with toddlerhood leavers; and detailed telephone interviews with a 22% sample of programme graduates.
