Optimizing Reach, Engagement and Effectiveness of Interactive Video Conferencing (IVC) Visits
This project was designed to help strengthen the effectiveness of virtual home visiting in building family assets and reducing family risks during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. It did so through a three-pronged approach to: 1) understand visitors’ perspectives on supports and challenges in transitioning to virtual visits; 2) assess visit content and communication strategies directly in visits using interactive video conferencing (IVC) visits; and 3) explore participants’ perspectives on the quality and effectiveness of IVC visits. This project, supported by the Pritzker Children’s Initiative, was carried out by Erikson Institute, one of the collaborating partners of the Home Visiting Applied Research Collaborative (HARC), a national research and development platform housed at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
