Rationale

It is presumed that families are more successful in benefiting if sessions are offered on a regular, predictable basis.

Sources of Information

Chart review, roster of sessions, and interviews with program coordinator, clinicians, and family members.

Item Response Coding

The primary evidence for coding this item would be attendance rosters or a calendar of scheduled events, if such documents exist. The program should have some way of documenting frequency of FPE sessions. If the documentation suggests that the organization provides at least biweekly FPE sessions, the item would be coded as a 5.

Probe Questions:

For program coordinator and clinicians How often are FPE sessions held for family members? Do you have attendance rosters, calendar of events, or other documentation to verify this?

For family members How often are FPE sessions held for family members?

3. Long-Term FPE

Definition

Families are provided with long-term FPE; specifically, at least one family member participates in FPE sessions for at least 9-months.

Rationale

In general, 6-9 months of biweekly equivalent FPE sessions are required for the families to learn necessary information and problem-solving skills. Following completion of the program, the families may also benefit from booster sessions or support groups.

Sources of Information

Chart review, roster of sessions, and interviews with program coordinator, clinicians, and family members.

Item Response Coding

The primary evidence for coding this item would be a report containing the number of families completing FPE and how long they attended, records of duration of FPE groups, or attendance sheets. In the absence of written records, the assessment will depend on interviews. Excluding dropouts, if there is evidence that = 90% of families receive at least 9 months of FPE sessions, the item would be coded as a 5.
