Evidenced-Based Practice: Following up with referral sources to answer questions and provide additional information

What It Looks Like:


  • Ongoing contact
  • Keeps contacts informed
  • Acknowledges communication and referrals
  • Personalized feedback
  • Opportunities to provide updates about children who have been referred
  • Integrated into overall planning
  • Keeps targeted systems informed of project activities

Adapted from Improving Outreach to Primary Referral Sources; TRACE Practice Guide, Nov 2006.

Things to Think About:

Follow up is so important that if it is not done, the likelihood of continued referrals is diminished.

Follow-up to meetings and visits

1. Do you consistently thank people for their time after a meeting?

2. Do you have an ongoing system in place for keeping in touch with individuals from targeted system(s)?

Referral Follow-up

1. Do you acknowledge receipt of all referrals in a timely manner?

2. Do you inform referral sources about the status of referrals?

3. Do you provide regular feedback to the referral source of each child receiving intensive TA?

TA Follow-up

1. Do you have clear evaluation plans in place to follow up on targeted and intensive TA?

2. Do you share data about project results and information about project accomplishments with targeted audiences in a systematic manner? Action Plan and Strategies
