- Brief summaryIn 10- 15% of children under the age of 4 years problems with their bringing-up and/or psycho-social development are present. The recent report made by the Invent Group, clearly shows that early detection, one of the spearheads of Operation Young is essential. The sooner an intervention can be performed, the more effective it is. The youth health care services in the Netherlands (YHC) provide the ideal environment for the early detection of problems in the bringing-up and development of young children due to their low threshold and high accessibility. Recently, three home care organizations in the province of Zeeland carried out an observational study for the early detection of problems in children of approximately 18 months (transitional period from baby to toddler). This was performed by means of house calls made by youth health care (YHC) nurses. This study proved to be very effective in differentiating between various risk groups such as: situation not to be trusted (“niet pluis”) and, difficult baby phase. One important advantage of a house call is that more and better information can be derived on the family situation and the interaction between child and parent(s). The question remains whether a house call is indeed a better location for the early detection compared to a visit to the YHC if a structured screening takes place that results in an assessment of low/high/increased risk for problems in bringing-up and development of a child (replacing the subjective evaluation of' “niet pluis”). The next question is whether a visit to the YHC with structured screening is better than a regular visit without structured screening in detecting children with high or increased risk.
For the first question 4,400 children from the whole province of Zeeland will be randomized to either a house call or a visit to the Youth Healthcare Centre, both 30’ long. All children reaching the age of 18 months according to Municipal Basic Registration will be included. Subsequently, a stepped screening model will be used with the help of the questionnaire for unfulfilled needs and bringing-up support, which includes a risk assessment (“Vragenlijst Onvervulde Behoeften en Opvoedingsondersteuning + Zorg/risicotaxatie, (VOBO-Z)”. This structured interview questionnaire makes an inventory of the problems and questions parents on 16 different aspects. Subsequently, questions continue on the nature of the problems and the care already offered. The risk assessment is carried out by the YHC nurse on the basis of the number and the degree of severity of the detected problems.
For the second research question the 2200 children from the 30’ YHC visit with structured screening will be compared to a non-randomised concurrent group of 2200 children. These children are from 3 regions in the South-West of the Netherlands with a regular 15’ YHC visit. In these visits only the risk assessment part of the VOBO-Z will be used.
