Perinatal Outreach Education Program (POE)

The goal of the POE program is to assure early and continuous prenatal care for all pregnant women, especially low-income women. Home visitation is arranged by the public health nurse through the client referral process. Case management services support the family through education, resource referral, and goal setting for optimal health and wellness. Program activities include:

 

  • Outreach to women of childbearing age
  • Assessment of smoking status and exposures to second-hand smoke
  • Development of a client plan to prevent smoking and exposure to tobacco smoke during pregnancy and the postpartum period
  • Public health nursing case management/ bilingual health education
  • Transportation vouchers and referral services to improve prenatal,postpartum, and children's health
