Two new ways to connect to the Data Center
As some of you know, a while back, the Data Center started a blog called Recipes. This blog was located inside the FCDA web tool and focused on how to use that tool to ask and answer system performance questions regarding outcomes for children in foster care.
In order to enable a broader audience to access that information—and much more—we’ve moved the blog over to our main website, expanded its scope, and given it a new name: CQIdeas. We’ll still use this forum to post FCDA web tool guidance, but we’ll also be using it to share information about new research coming from the Data Center, resources for building CQI capacity, and how to incorporate the use of research evidence into ongoing CQI activities. You’ll find the link to CQIdeas in the main menu on our homepage (and you’ll still be able to access it from inside the FCDA web tool, too).
We’ve also started an e-newsletter to keep you up to date on our work. This monthly publication will highlight new posts on CQIdeas, new reports, upcoming trainings and webinars, and other ways to get involved with the Data Center. To subscribe, click here.
We’re looking forward to communicating with a broad audience through these two new platforms. Your feedback will help us make CQIdeas and the e-newsletter useful and responsive resources, so please contact us with your questions and comments.
