Responding to parental concerns at the six-month stage

Health Visit. 1991 Mar;64(3):84-6.


Health visitors who are able to respond to parental worries about their babies' specific ailments and problems may be providing a more useful service than those who focus on routine assessment of growth and development, write Frances Sherratt, Ann Johnson and Sheila Holmes. Better understanding of the particular concerns of parents of both high and low risk infants could allow more appropriate targeting of resources and improved health care planning.
