Evaluation of Ohio’s Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home-visiting Prenatal Curriculum: Project Update

The 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act includes the authorization of Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) programs with significantly increased national investment over five years for at-risk pregnant women and children (Adirim, 2013; Issel, 2011; Michalopoulos et al., 2013; Willis, 2013). The goal of this expansion is to improve the long-term health and well-being of mothers and children by providing home-visiting programs that address prenatal care, healthcare for infants and young children, parenting, other precursors to lifelong health, and educational outcomes (Willis, 2013). The CETE Results Management Team’s evaluation of Ohio’s MIECHV prenatal curriculum will employ an experimental design to test the relationship of the online prenatal health curriculum to several home visitor variables.
