i-THRIVE Community of Practice Shared Learning Event

Tuesday 15th March 2016

Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families


This was the second learning event for the National i-THRIVE Community of Practice (CoP) which was attended by commissioners, service providers and clinicians from across the country who are starting to implement the THRIVE Framework in their localities.

The morning was led by Professor Miranda Wolpert and colleagues from the Child Outcomes Research Consortium (CORC) and focused on how commissioners and service providers can use measurement and outcomes to gain a greater understanding of how well a service is working and delivering care.

The afternoon focused on the ‘Getting Advice and Signposting’ needs based grouping of the THRIVE Framework, especially on the use of signposting. Three different sites from the i-THRIVE CoP presented on their local approach to implementing the THRIVE Framework and signposting.
