Table Help - Overview of the Implementation Guidelines

This table provides an overview of the implementation guidelines for the home visiting models included in the HomVEE review.

Field Descriptions

Implementation support available for model as reviewed?
Indicates whether the model has support for implementing a replication program. This may include instructions on how to sign up to affiliate with the model, where to get training, or published information indicating that the model is linked to multiple active programs.
In existence for 3 years?
Model operated for at least 3 years; model does not have to be operating when reviewed by HomVEE. If a model was not in existence for at least three years the answer is No.
Associated with national organization or institution of higher education?
National organization or institution of higher education includes non-U.S. based institutions. If none of the documents reviewed by HomVEE (see the implementation report reference list) included information about associations with organizations or institutions of higher education and if the developer provided no additional guidance the answer is No.
Minimum requirements for frequency of visits?
Model is considered to have minimum requirements for frequency of visits if developer provides guidance about minimum number of visits required or recommended. If none of the documents reviewed by HomVEE (see the implementation report reference list) included information about frequency of visits and if the developer provided no additional guidance the answer is No.
Minimum education requirements for home visitors?
Model is considered to have minimum education requirements for home visitors if model specifies that the home visitors must have at least a high school degree or GED or higher. If none of the documents reviewed by HomVEE (see the implementation report reference list) included information about education requirements and if the developer provided no additional guidance on education requirements the answer is No.
Supervision requirements for home visitors?
Model is considered to have minimum supervision requirements for home visitors if model requires that home visitors participate in supervision. Model does not need to specify the mode of supervision (such as group or individual meetings) or the frequency of supervision to meet this requirement.
Pre-service training for home visitors?
A model is considered to require pre-service training for home visitors if home visitors are required to complete any training requirements prior to initiating home visiting. Model does not have to offer training, certified trainers, or training materials to meet this requirement. If none of the documents reviewed by HomVEE (see the implementation report reference list) included information about pre-service training and if the developer provided no additional guidance the answer is No.
Fidelity standards for local implementing agencies (IAs)?
Model is considered to have fidelity standards for IAs if the model specifies any standards IAs must meet on an ongoing basis. If none of the documents reviewed by HomVEE (see the implementation report reference list) included information about fidelity standards for local implementing agencies and if the developer provided no additional guidance the answer is No.
System for monitoring fidelity?
Model is considered to have a system for monitoring fidelity if includes a formal or informal process by which the model developer monitors fidelity or guidance for IAs about how to monitor fidelity (including a self-assessment process). If none of the documents reviewed by HomVEE (see the implementation report reference list) included information about monitoring fidelity and if the developer provided no additional guidance the answer is No.
Specified content and activities for home visits?
Model is considered to have specified content and activities for home visits if the model requires IAs follow a specific curriculum or has a specified protocol outlining the topics that home visitors should cover either by visit or by developmental milestones. If IAs can select a curriculum or design their own content, the answer is No. If none of the documents reviewed by HomVEE (see the implementation report reference list) included information about specified content and activities for home visits and if the developer provided no additional guidance the answer is No.
