Information Card, 2012
The Million Messages program is the development of a comprehensive plan to standardize messages given to parents about injury by public or community health nurses. Each of these messages is simple, consistent, routine, and targets an issue that affects children at specific stages in their growth and development. The messages are developed for visits during the prenatal, newborn, two months, four months, six months, twelve months, eighteen months, and preschool periods. This program was developed by Capital Health in Alberta.
