Utilization of a Low Literacy Book to Manage Childhood Illness in a Community Home Visiting Program

This project would be an intervention both to improve 86's health and reduce inappropriate emergency room visits by providing parents or caregivers with a reference resource for understanding both common childhood ailments and their non-emergency care at home. A nurse navigator will use the book as an educational guide and tool for parents/caregivers who are enrolled in the program. In addition, it will encourage the use of a reputable online health resource for additional information MedlinePlus.
