This training focuses on how child welfare leaders can most effectively combine the data resources they have and the mandates under which they are operating, to develop an information management and operations strategy that will allow them to focus on the critical issues in their county child welfare system.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
- Think systematically about child welfare, from investigations to permanency
- Effectively communicate child welfare outcomes
- Develop baseline expectations for innovation
- Inform continuous quality improvement
- Evaluate contract agency performance
- Use longitudinal information in the budget process
This training will provide participants with an understanding of how to make best use of their information resources to structure services that meet their needs and are consistent with their county's Self-Assessment and SIP (system improvement plans).
