Home visitations for delivering an early childhood obesity intervention in Denver: parent and patient navigator perspectives.
This qualitative study explored parent and patient navigator perspectives of home visitation as part of a childhood obesity program in a low-income, largely Latino population. The investigators concluded that a home visitation program delivering a pediatric obesity prevention curriculum in Denver was convenient and held families accountable, but posed scheduling difficulties and raised safety concerns.
