Establishing CQI in Child Welfare
The Center for State Child Welfare Data (Data Center) designed a continuous quality improvement (CQI) webpage and model specifically for child welfare agencies. The Data Center works closely with agencies to help them adopt CQI structures (''interventions'') and establish data-driven practice across the organization. According to the Data Center's CQI process model, the steps toward establishing CQI include assessing baseline performance on central child welfare outcomes, analyzing, establishing performance targets, implementing, evaluating, and gathering feedback.
The Data Center features selected publications on CQI in child welfare, in addition to an archive of online CQI seminars. The Data Center's CQI webpage is available here:
