Learning Collaborative

After the BSC was completed, the Learning Collaborative has continued to engage several ‘early-adopter’ partnerships to implement and test components of the Training and Resource Toolkit with the populations they serve before revising it and releasing it through National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN).  These teams have identified approaches that may be effective and practical in their environment.  Through participation in the collaborative, they can be coached and supported through critical implementation steps and at the same time share their experiences with other teams working toward similar goals.

Typically, the topic of an LC is an evidence-based or evidence-informed practice.  For the PICC, the topics will include the promising integrated care practices emerging from the Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) evidence within the BSC.  Participants meet in person, for three two-day Learning Sessions (LS) over a period of 9 to 12 months.  During the time between the LSs, Action Periods occur, which involve teams meeting individually, implementing innovations, testing them with metrics for change, and sharing challenges and solutions within monthly conference calls across the LC participants.  Faculty assist teams with consultation.  An intranet is also used to support teaching, promote collaboration, and share resources during Action Periods. Learning Collaborative I was commpleted in September 2015 and Learning Collaborative II will begin in December 2015.
