Measuring improvement in outcomes for children and young people

Jim Magee and Ruth Talbot

Knowledge for Improvement project


Knowledge needs rationale
Knowledge needs - rationale people

  • To review the way we measure progress against the ECM outcomes and aims

  • Why bother?

    • 5 Outcomes and aims are very powerful

    • but feedback suggests there are problems with the indicators beneath them:

      • not all outcome-focused

      • not all available at a local level

      • outcomes - uneven coverage

      • age ranges - uneven coverage

I


Knowledge needs action
Knowledge needs - action people

4 linked pieces of work:

  • Develop a set of ‘descriptors’ to clarify the aims and highlight their most important aspects

  • Use the descriptors to develop a more complete set of outcome-focused population indicators

  • Work with inspectorates and local authorities to refine the existing set of performance measures

  • Ensure that qualitydata is available to underpin the indicators and measures and allow breakdown of outcomes for vulnerable groups


Progress
Progress people

  • Draft set of population indicators developed

    • Tested and refined in a series of focus groups

    • Overwhelmingly positive reaction – reflects direction of travel of a number of partners

  • Agreement from inspectorates to work together on performance measures

  • Approval from Ministers to continue with development work


Population indicators
Population indicators people

  • ‘Long list’ of 50 proposed population indicators in total, with a good spread across the five outcomes

  • 3 would be used twice

  • c. 35% currently available nationally and locally

  • c. 30% currently available at national level only

  • c. 15% would be totally new, most coming from surveying CYP

  • c. 20% are not fully defined or need further investigation


Next steps
Next steps people

  • Produce a hierarchy of indicators

  • Assess the feasibility of implementing the proposed set of population indicators

  • Develop a business case

  • Reflect work on outcomes for parents

  • Drafting of guidance to accompany redraft

  • Costed proposals to Ministers


Discussion
Discussion people

  • Thoughts/comments on the work

  • Views on how the refreshed framework could be used to help move towards outcome focused, child-based working

  • Comments on issues that the guidance accompanying the refreshed framework will need to address

  • Barriers that will need to be overcome to implement the refreshed framework
