Social education or medical care? Divergent views on visiting nurses in Belgium in the interwar years

Pieter Dhondt UGent (2012) HISTORY OF EDUCATION & CHILDRENS LITERATURE. 7(1). p.505-522
abstract
Following the hygiene movement, the fight against infant mortality also became an important policy objective in Belgium around the First World War. Increasingly, the National Board of Child Welfare made an appeal to visiting nurses to give mothers educational advice in their own environment and to carry out medical checks on children. The article explores to what extent the education of (visiting) nurses and the resulting approach of infant care was pillarized along ideological lines, not only on an institutional basis, but also with regard to the content of the education and opposing ideas on the work of nurses - as embodied by the catholic St. Elizabeth nursing school in Bruges and the liberal Ecole belge d'Infirmieres diplomees in Brussels.
