Building Better Social Programs

David Olds developed nurse home visiting as an intervention for poor, first-time mothers. As demonstrated by three randomized trials in Elmira, Memphis, and Denver, the Nurse-Family Partnership became the basis for significant federal funding under the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program. The transition from pilot program to federal legislation included tiered funding, by which programs demonstrated by Randomized Controlled Trials were prioritized over those with less empirical support.
