Scaling nurturing care interventions in the health sector: a theory of change perspectiveAn effective scale-up of an integrated intervention through healthcare requires a theory of change approach elucidating pathways of sustainable change. From this viewpoint, the author reflects on his experience of scaling the intervention in a private pediatric care setting. Buy-in from the health sector required realization of benefits to include health outcomes framed as the potential to improve the quality of life and the process of recovery; sustainable behavior change required a culture that promoted nurturing care highlighting the role of leadership; subsequently improving the experience of frontline staff and at an individual level. This could be achieved through the provision of supportive supervision-rooted in a framework of compassion.
