Assessing Home Visit Quality: Dosage, Content, and Relationships
Paulsell, Diane; Boller, Kimberly; Hallgren, Kristin; Mraz Esposito, Andrea
Zero to Three (J), v30 n6 p16-21 Jul 2010
Home visiting is a service delivery strategy, but the content and focus of home visiting, as well as the characteristics of home visitors and the targeted outcomes, vary across program models. Understanding what is common, what is unique, and what the targets of change are for a range of models can support identification of key factors that make home visits effective. The authors present information on several characteristics of home visits--dosage, content, and relationships--that may be important for assessing home visit quality across program models, measurement strategies that can be used to assess them, and examples of how quality measures are being used in the field for programmatic and research purposes.
