This digital document is an article from Pediatric Nursing, published by Thomson Gale. This study focused on evaluation of outcomes of child care health consultation services delivered to child care providers in New Jersey. Child care centers and providers of family day care who had received child care health consultation services in New Jersey participated in the study. Sixty child care health consultation service recipients from 19 of the 21 counties in the state responded to the Child Care Health Consultation Questionnaire. Positive findings were statistically significant correlations between usefulness of services, satisfaction with services, changes at the child care site and improvement in staff caregiving.
