Spotlight on Continuous Quality Improvement
In August 2012, the Children's Bureau released an Information Memorandum on Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI), the process by which organizations identify, describe, and analyze strengths and problems and then test, implement, learn from, and revise solutions. This month, CBX looks at how the child welfare field is using the philosophy of CQI to evaluate and improve interventions for children and families. We also highlight a new Children's Bureau CQI Training project.
