Successful Culture Change Strategies Used By Residential Programs to Achieve Transformation Towards Sustained Positive Outcomes

November 7, 2012 1:00-2:30pm EDT

Residential providers are noted for continually making improvements to their practices. The Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) calls for more than just practice improvement; it calls for a total transformation – from residential as a placement to residential as an intervention – from providing most services within the residential program to providing most services in the community. This type of transformation requires leaders with expertise in successful culture change. Please join this webinar to learn how different leaders have approached the culture change process and about successful strategies they have used to achieve organizational transformation and improved permanency for youth and families served.

Best Practices in Using Data to Inform Practice and Tracking Long-term Outcomes for Residential Programs and their Community Counterparts

October 11, 2012 1:00-2:30pm EDT

The Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) is committed to supporting positive outcomes for youth and families touched by residential interventions, and their community counterparts. BBI’s Outcomes Workgroup recently finalized a document, “A Building Bridges Initiative Tip Sheet: Evaluating and Improving Outcomes for Youth who have Received Residential Services”. The Outcomes Tip Sheet outlines a framework for achieving measurable, long-term outcomes; promoting mutual accountability among residential and community programs, families, payers and regulators; and for using data to inform decision making. This webinar provides both detail to the Tip Sheet framework and examples of how entities and organizations at different stages of transformation and implementing best practices consistent with BBI principles are using data to inform practice and measuring long-term outcomes.
