JBA has released the Continuous Quality Improvement Toolkit: A Resource for Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program Awardees, which will help local agencies build capacity in CQI. The toolkit was developed through the Design Options for Home Visiting Evaluation project, which is overseen by the Administration for Children and Families in partnership with the Health Resources and Services Administration.
The toolkit features examples from home visiting but may also be helpful for audiences from other early childhood and human service programs. It contains nine modules; each module includes a facilitation guide, PowerPoint slides with facilitation notes, and handouts and activities for participants.
