The authors outline the need for comprehensive perinatal services management for African American pregnant women, based on social/environmental stressors, and propose a workable model for delivery of services based on case management principles.
The implications of case management as an intervention to ameliorate these stressors are discussed.
Data from 5 years of comprehensive case management are included to support the effectiveness of case management as an intervention among high-risk women.
Steps utilized to develop, implement, and evaluate case management are also discussed.
