Nursing Child Assessment Satellite Training Scale (NCAST)
objectivesWe examined whether the video-based anticipatory guidance would increase knowledge of early cognitive and language development, which in turn promote cognitive growth fostering behaviors among parents of low-SES.
exposureVideo-based anticipatory guidance.
outcomes evaluatedKnowledge of early cognitive/language development and cognitive growth fostering behaviors.
setting10 pediatric clinics predominantly serving families of low-SES in Chicago.
methodsParent-infant dyads were randomized by the lead research assistant into either the intervention (video-based anticipa-tory guidance on early cognitive and language development) or control (sudden infant death syndrome video or usual-care) condition, using block randomization method... Using a tablet provided by a research assistant, parents in the intervention condition watched 1 video-based anticipatory guidance module at the 1-month, 2-month, 4-month, and 6-month well-child visits.
sample sizen=340 (dyads, total); n=168 (dyads, intervention); n=172 (dyads, control)
