Description

The Healthy Families Parenting Inventory (HFPI) is a 63‐item outcome measure that was designed to examine change in nine parenting‐related domains. The HFPI was developed to respond to the need for an outcome measure for home visitation programs that is relevant to the intervention, sensitive to change, and appropriate with a diverse participant base, and would produce data that are immediately useful in practice. The authors detail the steps in the development and initial validation of the HFPI. The pattern of inter‐item and item‐to‐subscale correlations as well as an exploratory factor analysis and sensitivity to change analysis support the nine‐factor model of the HFPI. (author abstract)
