Supporting Quality in Home-Based Care
Paulsell, Diane, 2007
Mathematica Policy Research

The purpose of this project is to provide useful information for policymakers and administrators who aim to develop or fund initiatives for home-based caregivers and researchers seeking to build the knowledge base about home-based care. The project had three primary objectives: (1) to systematically gather information from existing research on home-based child care and on initiatives that aim to support these caregivers; (2) to synthesize the available evidence on home-based care; and (3) to propose next steps for designing and evaluating initiatives that aim to improve the quality of care in these settings
