Project Summary:
The Evidence‐Based Management project was a four‐year knowledge‐mobilization initiative designed to develop and evaluate a model for supporting greater use of research as a management tool in child welfare organizations. The final year of the project was used to complete an evaluation as well as support the transition to sustainable on‐going activities, including (1) maintaining two Clinical Integration Groups – one on sexual abuse and one on conjugal violence ‐‐ supported by researchers and graduate students, (2) supporting analysis of outcome indicators for In‐The‐Know, a joint Batshaw/CRCF research publication, (3) supporting the province‐wide outcome indicators initiative (see Gestion fondée sur les indicateurs de suivi clinique en protection de la jeunesse below), and (4) disseminating findings from the study.
