|Abstract: ||Little has been written about how nurses work with families who have complex and multiple vulnerabilities in the context of residential early parenting centres. The Ellen Barron Family Centre situated in Brisbane is an early parenting centre (EPC) conducting an extended parenting education program which is aimed at such families. The aim of the program is to support these parents to increase parental knowledge and confidence in parenting ability through the provision of targeted education and parenting support. The program is led by nursing staff within the context of an EPC. An evaluation of this program has been undertaken and is reported in this thesis. The study aimed to describe how the program was implemented by the nurses, gain an understanding of the issues that impacted on the provision of the program and to discover whether in fact this program had any impact on parenting ability. This work offers a deeper understanding of how nurses actually undertake this work with vulnerable families and provides insight into the factors that affect the nurses’ work.|
