Since 2017, there have been nearly three dozen studies carried out with HARC’s PBRN.  These studies have covered a variety of topics –family engagement, military families, birth outcomes, home visiting’s response to COVID-19, workforce development, and many more.  HARC PBRN studies recruit a range of participants, in the past program managers, supervisors and home visitors have all had the opportunity to participate in studies. The PBRN has also supported studies that have worked through home visitors to recruit families enrolled in home visiting.  All HARC PBRN studies undergo a review process by the HARC Council. More information about proposing a study can be found here.
