  • Understand a basic framework for Continuous Quality Improvement
  • Understand how to use data to inform your community‘s CQI processes
  • Learn, through real examples, the importance of collaboration among evaluators, managers, families and other key stakeholders, to generate effective improvement strategies
  • Learn how to "close the loop" by asking and answering the question: Are our improvement strategies working?
  • Identify tools and other resources available to communities to develop and strengthen their own

CQI processes.

what is continuous quality improvement cqi
What is Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI)?

  • Starts with a program logic model
  • Involves using data to identify whether implementation is consistent with the logic model
  • Requires real dialogue around areas in need of improvement and what can be done to improve
  • Focuses on developing an infrastructure to address the problems; not just a one time solution
data driven tools to support cqi
Data-driven Tools to Support CQI
  • Key to the CQI process

System of Care Strategy


Guiding Principles

Practice Outcomes

• Service providers integrate system of care principles and values into practice

• Children and families receive coordinated and useful services and supports in the community

Child and Family Outcomes

• Children's distressing symptoms are reduced

• Children have improved ability to function at home, in school, and in their community

• Improved family functioning and reduced caregiver strain

System Outcomes

• Families are full partners in policy and implementation

• Agency partnerships are broadened and deepened

• Comprehensive, coordinated, efficient, and accountable service array is developed

• Resources are appropriately allocated and utilized locally

• System of care is sustained with stable, long-term funding

• Child and family satisfaction with services is improved

Practice Context

• Practices have traditionally promoted the use of restrictive placements and services

• Service providers need to meet multiple needs of children and families that cross agency boundaries

• Need coordination among service providers

Child & Family Context

• Children under 22 years of age and their families

• Diagnosis of emotional, behavioral, or mental disorder

• Level of functioning in family, school, and/or community environments is limited

• Two or more community agencies involved

• Disability must be present at least one year

System Context

• Federal Center for Mental Health Services funds and supports systems of care with: Leadership, Technical assistance, Consultation, Evaluation

• Local matching funds and resources

• Need for comprehensive array of community-based, culturally competent and family-focused services

• Need for family advocacy

• Family-focused: Services and supports should consider the needs and strengths of the entire family.

• Individualized: Services and supports should be tailored to the needs and strengths of each child and family.

• Culturally competent: Services and supports should be sensitive and responsive to the cultural characteristics of children and their families.

• Least restrictive: Service planning should balance a child and family's need to interact in school and community settings with the most appropriate services and supports.

  • Local Service Delivery Process:

The mission of the Comprehensive Community Mental Health Services for Children and Their Families Program is to encourage the development of intensive community-based services for children with serious emotional disturbance and their families based on a multi-agency, multi-disciplinary approach involving both the public and private sectors.

State & Federal agency partners

  • Community-based: Services and supports should be provided in the child and family's community.
  • Accessible: Access to services and supports should not be limited by location, scheduling or cost.
  • Interagency: Core agencies providing services and supports should include mental health, child welfare, juvenile justice and education.
  • Coordination/collaboration: Partner agencies, providers and organizations should provide a seamless system of services and supports for children and families.

Governance, management, quality monitoring and array of services/supports
