A nurse/community health advocate program for Hispanic immigrants was designed to resolve their health problems using a case management approach based on primary health care concepts. The program focused on assessments of clients and their resources as well as linkage referral to community service resources. Furthermore, client education concerning health, available community resources, and skills needed to access resources were provided with diverse community level interventions. The clients in demonstrated improved social skills, community knowledge and empowered attitudes in resolving their daily health and social issues. Event history analysis is a powerful tool to evaluate the success of program implementation by investigating activity data. Descriptive analysis, life table analysis and duration parametric and semi-parametric regression models were applied to the program activity data. The duration and program exit behavior could be explained by clients' socio-demographic factors and type and intensity of the program intervention. The existence of neighborhood effects in the client's program service usage behavior was investigated using multilevel survival models. The program dependence was tested using a frailty survival model that controls for the unobserved heterogeneity of client characteristics. The findings confirmed that the program achieved client self-reliance goal, one of the important program objectives. The results of the analysis offer evidence based guides follow-up program design and implementation by community health nurse managers.
