Publications

This page contains our reports to government as well as information on the Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) we are conducting on the Nurse-Family Partnership. As well, it also includes academic publications we have written for peer-reviewed journals.

For reports, each link provides a report summary and further links to short and full reports. For more recent research evidence about preventing and treating child mental health problems, please see our Quarterly publication, which tackles a different issue with each edition.

For peer-reviewed journals, each link provides the full abstract to the article and, from there, a link to the journal that published it. Some of the journals are accessible to all; others require a subscription. Please contact the Children’s Health Policy Centre if you would like more information about any of the articles.
