2013 Decision Trees

One of the goals of the Healthy Kent Infant Health Implementation Team is that all pregnant women be screened, not just for physical health risks, but also for factors such as domestic violence, mental health and substance abuse issues, and lack of basic needs which can negatively impact a woman’s pregnancy and birth outcome. When a survey of health care providers was done in 2004, they identified a lack of knowledge of resources to refer women to. This led to the development of the Prenatal Decision Trees in 2005. In 2009, the Infant Health Implementation Team created Infant Decision Trees using this same model.

Now, in 2013, we have updated the Decision Trees and made a few changes. There are no longer “Prenatal” and “Infant” Decision Trees. The Decision Trees are applicable to both women and their children unless specifically identified in the title of the Tree.

We hope that these Decision Trees will help you to assist your clients in accessing the resources they need to have a successful pregnancy and healthy children. Please feel free to print them for your clients.
