Abstract:

The Alberta Child Intervention Review Panel (Panel) was asked to help strengthen the "system" of child intervention service in Alberta, and in particular find ways to improve its accountability, adaptability and continuous improvement. We were not asked to review the quality of services delivered or to assess outcomes that are realized for children and families who receive intervention services. However, we know there is a strong connection between the performance of individuals who provide services and the conditions in which they work. By focusing "upstream" on improving organization and processes, this Panel was asked to help create conditions where it is possible to deliver better services. In this way, enhanced accountability, adaptability and continual improvement will ultimately improve outcomes for children and families.

This report makes recommendations for improving the way that child intervention works in Alberta. There is great promise for what can be accomplished by families, communities and government working together. Our recommendations align with the current vision for Alberta, build on areas that have been successful, but also offer a different course for achieving the vision. We are filled with a sense of optimism that Alberta's Minister of Children and Youth Services will embrace this report as a call to action, and a framework for bridging the gap between vision and reality.
