Beek, D. Wildeman, I. Verkerk, P. Schönbeck, Y. Publication year 2022 Abstract Aims The Dutch Development Instrument (DDI) measures child development with milestones. Videos were developed that allow caregivers to assess these developmental milestones for their child before they go to youth health care (YHC). By involving caregivers in their child's development, they are likely to be better prepared for the visit. The aim of this research is to examine experiences and determinants of current and future use of the videos in YHC practice. Materials and methods A qualitative study with semi-structured interviews was conducted to identify experiences, facilitators and barriers of the use of the videos as experienced by YHC-professionals (n=14) and caregivers (n=10). In a quantitative study data were collected among 4,370 caregivers to study experiences with the videos and the outcomes on their child\'s age-specific milestones. Results The qualitative survey showed that the use of the videos was perceived as positive by most YHC professionals and caregivers. Points of attention were the fact that some groups participated less (eg non-native speakers), lack of time and direct feedback from caregivers and that the outcomes on milestones were not always equal between caregivers and YHC professionals. The quantitative study showed that caregivers gave the videos an average grade of 8.2. About half of the caregivers felt (more) involved in the development of their child and also better prepared for the appointment with the YHC professional. The milestones were understood by 96-100% of the caregivers. Some milestones required the use of materials that were not present in every household, such as a tricycle. Conclusion The videos were positively evaluated by both professionals and caregivers. Improvements in the way of implementation can facilitate and increase the use. Based on the results of this research and other activities, we have developed an implementation plan to support YHC organizations when they want to implement the use of the videos.
