Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

A healthy pregnancy outcome brochure to educate women of childbearing age and pregnant women
by Delcourt, Sarah E., M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 94; 1596459
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to create a brochure based on current healthy pregnancy outcome recommendations with additional recommendations for reducing organophosphate (OP) pesticide exposure and promotion of nutrition quality of organic versus conventionally grown food. Specific objectives of the project were: (a) review the literature and depth of the problem, (b) review existing similar healthy pregnancy outcome educational material, (c) develop a brochure for the purpose of educating women of childbearing age and pregnant women about healthy pregnancy outcome recommendations, and (d) develop tools to measure learner comprehension of the information presented in the brochure, as well as obtain recommendations for improving the brochure. An expert panel reviewed the brochure and modifications were made based on their suggestions. Implementing the resulting evidence-based brochure could help increase healthy pregnancy outcomes and improve the overall health of women and children.
