Publication name: Evaluability assessment of the Family Nurse Partnership in Scotland
Date: 03 September 2015
Description: The Family Nurse Partnership (FNP) is a licensed US programme which offers intensive, structured home visiting support to teenage first-time mothers delivered by a specially trained nurse from early pregnancy until the child’s second birthday. The programme was introduced in Scotland in 2010 and is gradually being rolled out. This paper presents an evaluability assessment (EA) of the FNP in Scotland conducted on behalf of the Scottish Government by a collaboration of evaluation specialists from NHS Health Scotland, two academic public health research units (SPHSU and SCPHRP) and the Scottish Government public health analytical team.
