Organizing and Staffing the California Home Visit Summit

In 2016, PHI’s Center for Collaborative Planning organized the California Home Visit Summit, which convened over 500 home visitors and their supervisors/program managers, Maternal, Child and Adolescent Health program directors and coordinators, early childhood program representatives, local health partners and agencies, and those interested in the health and well-being of California’s children and families. Held over two days, the summit emphasized skill building, learning and networking for home visitors and people working for/with home visiting programs.

The summit included a variety of skill-building opportunities, such as: motivational interviewing, male involvement, breastfeeding, maternal/caregiver mental health, substance use, oral health, gender identity, adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), trauma, asthma, prevention, and parent engagement. Evaluation results show that participants gained skills and knowledge from workshop sessions and appreciated new tools and opportunities to engage in practicing new methodologies.
