planning for peer review
PLANNING for Peer Review
  • Select a process, specific tool, program, or a case
  • Determine what is to be improved. Focus on timeliness, quality, efficiency, accuracy, etc.
  • Develop a peer review tool from ORC/OAC, CAPMIS/SACWIS, COA, Agency policies & procedures
  • Create instructions/guides, tool and answer sheet
  • Determine the pool, sampling, timeframes, etc.
  • Detail logistics of reviewers, process, assignment, collecting and recording data
  • Get baseline data to help determine goals
  • Evaluation plan – measuring, operationalize/define; for quality use; y/n, OR not, substantially, or partially achieved.
  • Communication plan- how to share results, not punitive, unit level may spur competition, STPs/departments and “BIG” CQI, agency-wide
  • Think about IMPROVEMENTS and Strategies
implementation with peer review
  • Get started, per the plan
  • Use the STP workgroup/committee members as subject matter experts/champions
  • Be flexible; things will change; tools, instructions; continuous learning
  • Need oversight, responsibility, keep things moving- CQI timeline
  • Data and evaluation are key-analyze results, goals, progress
  • Communicate as you go! Share with CQI Workgroup, BIG CQI, agency-wide
  • Improvement strategies; policy/procedures, SACWIS, agency processes, training, tools-Red Letter Guides, Q-tips, Reports
  • Campaigns/competition- reward success!

EVALUATION with Peer Review
  • Gather data and compare peer review results, baseline and improvements
  • Automate our process- Scantron & EXCEL
  • Create reports and charts to show analysis of data- remember your audience!
  • Report at supervisor level – not worker level, not for performance evaluations
  • Set goals and benchmarks, determine when improvement is reached
  • Remember to evaluate the process and implementation as well- satisfaction surveys
next steps with peer review
Next STEPS with Peer Review
    • Share-- communicate results, remember your audience, REWARD success! All levels-individual, supervisor, dept., agency wide. Use FCCS rotator, bathroom posts, “best” peer reviews, campaigns like QTSA, Awesome sauce, Father’s Day cards & Engagement
    • Strategize--Identify areas for improvement, ideas/strategies to use. Plan for improvements- process, clarification of policies/guides, Q-tips, training/education, measuring/monitoring with reports
    • Sustain—through accountable processes, use data, SACWIS, reports & monitoring, FCCS Dashboard
peer review highlight capmis reunification assessments ras
Peer Review Highlight-CAPMIS Reunification Assessments (RAs)
  • FCCS Region CQI STP group worked to improve the timeliness and quality of CAPMIS RAs. Support FCCS PIP activities for more inclusive peer review process, supervisor involvement , CAPMIS tool improvements, and improvements in CFSR 1.1 – Timeliness & Permanency of Reunification.
  • FCCS Baseline data indicated that RAs were not being completed or used as a tool to drive decision-making. Also inconsistency among Regions, units, supervisors, or workers in the completion and quality of the RAs.
  • Timeliness and quality had to be defined and operationalized.
    • Timeliness determined to be completion 0 to 30 days prior to the youth’s discharge.
    • Quality was determined by thorough review of SACWIS, CAPMIS and the RA tool with changes in agency policies and procedures, creation of instructions, and a Red Letter Guide.
    • Additional training and quality tips (Q-tips)
    • Data was instrumental and reports were analyzed and shared so that progress was evident.
