What is Nurse-Family Partnership?
Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) is an evidence-based home-visiting program that improves the health, well-being and self-sufficiency of first-time parents and their children. This public health intervention has been systematically evaluated in the United States where consistent program effects have been demonstrated. We are now working to adapt and evaluate Nurse-Family Partnership in the Canadian context. Public health nurses are currently delivering this program in several health units and health authorities throughout Ontario and British Columbia.
