WVP Pre-Implementation Protocol
Engaging your team in a decision to employ the Well-Visit Planner (WVP) is the first and most important implementation step. Solid buy-in from staff is essential to every aspect of implementation. For many Head Start agencies, this type of direct, hands-on patient and provider engagement activity may generate concerns about impact on time, capacity to respond to issues parents raise, and ensuring effective follow-up on issues raised by parents when completing the WVP tool. The Pre-Implementation Protocol provides ideas for preparing and educating your team about the WVP and ways to address common questions to help the process go as smoothly as possible. Information provided includes steps to implementing the WVP, time and resources needed, and sample implementation map and planner/tracker.
