Nurse-Family Partnership

Nurse-Family Partnership aims to improve the lives of young, first-time mothers and their children. The program particularly focuses on girls and young women and their children who are facing disadvantages such as limited income.

Public health nurses provide the home visits — up to 65 in total over two-and-a-half years. Nurses delivering the program receive extensive education. As well, they receive resources to use in the visits, and ongoing supervision and support.

For more information on the program, please contact your family doctor, nurse-practitioner or midwife, or local Health Authority.
