As the National Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children 2009 to 2020 draws to a close, what’s next?

The National Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children 2009-2020 (the Framework), endorsed by the Council of Australian Governments in April 2009, has served us well in establishing the mechanism for high-level collaboration and cooperation between Commonwealth, State and Territory governments and non-government organisations. The series of 3-year action plans produced under the umbrella of the Framework focused attention on prioritised areas of concern and held us all – governments and the non-government sector - to account for our performance in achieving the outcomes sought from these plans.

With the Framework now drawing to a close, the questions now turn to where to from here in building on the gains that have been made and how do we now proceed in completing the unfinished business of protecting Australia’s children. These are questions wrestled with during a workshop conducted by Families Australia in Brisbane this week, one of a series of workshops being held across the country. PeakCare’s Lindsay Wegener and Stephanie Fielder were pleased to make our contributions to these discussions and felt privileged to hear the views expressed by the diverse range of Commonwealth and State Government representatives, non-government organisations, representative groups and other special interest groups in attendance. It was especially pleasing to hear the strong representations made by the CREATE Foundation and the Family Inclusion Network. Whatever the answers to these questions may be, it’s very clear that their success will depend on them being well-informed and driven by the experiences and wisdom of parents, children and young people.

Community Based Prevention and Implementation: Implementation Science and Practice - Introduction to Key Concepts 
Brisbane - Thursday, 31st October

Considered by some as the necessary link between science and practice, the field of Implementation Sciences addresses the factors that influence the delivery of quality services. Implementation Sciences reminds us that the development of evidence-based practices (as informed by Prevention Science) is not enough to ensure good outcomes. Indeed implementation matters! However, for a number of reasons many evidence-based programs are not implemented well. Understanding implementation, is therefore vital to the development, successful use and upscaling of evidence-based programs. Concepts such as, theory of change or program logic, fidelity, adaptation and measuring implementation are all important to Implementation Sciences. This one-day workshop will explore these, and other core concepts related to Implementation Sciences. Opportunity to apply these concepts to your practice and how it relates to systems change will be provided throughout the day. Find out more and register.
