Home Visitor Research Training Link copied to clipboard
Home visitors are critical partners in home visiting (HV) research and quality improvement projects. The goal of the Home Visitor Research Training is to increase the number of home visitors who partner in research by providing guidance on research design, methods, and interpretation and dissemination of findings. By increasing home visitors’ engagement in research, it will ensure that HV research generates information that is useful to HV programs and families.
With funding from the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), a team of home visiting staff and managers, model developers, and researchers oversaw development of four short (~20 minute) video modules that aim to increase home visitors’ research knowledge and research self-efficacy. All videos are free for download/viewing. Examples of ways in which this training could be used are: (a) as part of ongoing home visitor training/professional development or (b) onboarding for home visitors who are partners on a research project.
