Improving Systems through Collaboration: Top Down or Bottom Up? Both!

July 14 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm PDT

Catalysts for change exist at all levels of social service, health, and court systems—from state-level leaders to local agency directors. Sustaining practice and policy changes require local implementation efforts that in turn rely on state support.

National Center on Substance Abuse and Child Welfare’s (NCSACW) upcoming panel discussion highlights the lessons and successes of change implementation.

The panel examines how sustaining system-level change: 1) maximizes implementation efforts, and 2) ensures programs remain effectively and equitably delivered and sustained—from the top down and bottom up. These lessons stem from NCSACW’s specialized technical assistance programs: In-Depth Technical Assistance (IDTA) and Regional Partnership Grant (RPG).

Join this facilitated discussion to ask questions and network with other tribes, states, and communities. Learning objectives include:

  • Understand how to make change at the local and state levels.
  • Identify practice-level strategies necessary to create systems-level change.
  • Build collaborative capacity with partner agencies and systems.
  • Engage strong leadership to assure collaboratives develop mutually defined goals, make lasting practice changes, and mitigate systemic barriers to improve outcomes for children and families.

Please submit your questions to presenters when you register for the session.
Registration is free.
