HomVEE releases call for studies

November 2017

HomVEE seeks studies for a comprehensive review of the evidence base for home visiting program models. This call for studies aims to identify studies that the HomVEE team has not previously reviewed, including unpublished manuscripts (past or recent), conference papers, and new publications (currently in press) that are not included in databases searched for this review. Authors may also submit new evidence or findings that build on or expand previously reviewed studies (if the results are reported as new, stand-alone articles). Submissions are due by January 2, 2018.

HomVEE releases updated prioritization procedures

November 2017

HomVEE has updated the procedures for how home visiting program models are prioritized for review. First, when a non-evidence-based model is eligible for re-review, studies already reviewed by HomVEE that received a high or moderate rating will now receive the same number of points as new studies. Second, studies that examine a U.S. population, indigenous population, or a priority population (as identified in statute) will receive more points in the prioritization process. Finally, after totaling the points on studies for each model, HomVEE will apply additional points for a series of model-level factors that will give models more points in the prioritization process for meeting specific MIECHV-relevant criteria, in order to more closely align HomVEE with the MIECHV Program.


Assessing the Research on Home Visiting Program Models Implemented in Tribal Communities Part 1: Evidence of Effectiveness

September 2017

A portion of the federal funds that support home visiting for mothers and families with young children are designated specifically for supporting home visiting in tribal communities. Therefore, policymakers and program administrators need to know what research has learned about home visiting in these communities. To assess the evidence of effectiveness of models that have been implemented in tribal communities, HomVEE conducted a targeted systematic review. The review included studies of home visiting program models implemented in tribal communities. Part 1 of this report describes the review process and findings, descriptive information about the program models evaluated, and summary conclusions about effectiveness. The review was originally released in February 2011; the updated version includes results through the 2016 review.

Assessing the Research on Home Visiting Program Models Implemented in Tribal Communities Part 2: Lessons Learned about Implementation and Evaluation

September 2017

A portion of the federal funds that support home visiting for mothers and families with young children are designated specifically for supporting home visiting in tribal communities. Therefore, policymakers and program administrators need to know what research has learned about home visiting in these communities. To assess the evidence of effectiveness of models that have been implemented in tribal communities, HomVEE conducted a targeted systematic review. The review included studies of home visiting program models implemented in tribal communities. Part 2 of this report describes key lessons learned from home visiting models implemented in tribal communities, including gaps in the research literature that create challenges for assessing effectiveness and suggestions for strengthening future research in this area. The review was originally released in February 2011; the updated version includes results through the 2016 review.

HomVEE reporting guide for study authors

May 2016

This document provides guidance on how to describe randomized controlled trials and matched comparison group design studies. It also discusses how to report findings that are clear, complete, and transparent. Reporting the information described below is considered a best practice in general, and the information but can help HomVEE reviewers assess the appropriate rating to assign to the study.
