Peer Reviewer Training
Peer Reviewers are the backbone of the HFA Quality Assurance and Accreditation system. These dedicated professionals have substantial experience with HFA at the local and/or state level and are committed to continuous quality improvement.
Being a peer reviewer provides many unique opportunities for professional development. Peers participate in training on quality assurance and HFA best practice standards. Because of their unique role within the HFA initiative, peer reviewers collectively form a network of skilled professionals, all sharing a deep commitment to continuous quality improvement and Healthy Families America. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, the site visits conducted by peer reviewers provide each peer with an opportunity to see how other sites have implemented best practices.
The actual training will simulate all of the activities necessary to complete an actual site visit beginning with an initial and thorough review of a self study (selected standards only), file review, interview scenarios, entrance and exit meetings, etc.
