Event - Measuring Up: Using measures to learn about the children and families we serve
Join us on December 2nd for a lunchtime webinar to learn more about the Child, Youth and Family Database.
Measuring Up is a 60 minute webinar with fantastic speakers from across the island of Ireland. The webinar will be of interest to people working in social and health services (including nurses, teachers and youth workers), research professionals (e.g., academic and freelance social and health researchers), organisations conducting monitoring or evaluation, and commissioners of research and evaluation.
The Child, Youth and Family Database is an exciting, free resource which pools detailed information about standardised measurement tools used in Irish research with children, young people and their families.
This webinar will explore the ways in which validated tools are used to gain insights into the communities we serve. We will ask why measurement tools are pivotal to processes and outcomes, and what is the value of outcome measurement for the children, young people and families that access our supports and services?
The event will include contributions from Valerie Maxwell, the Planning and Information Manager at the Children and Young People's Strategic Partnership (CYPSP) in Northern Ireland, and Dr Maria O'Dwyer, the National Coordinator of the Prevention & Early Intervention Network in Ireland. It will be chaired by Dr Liam O'Hare, who is Principal Research Fellow at the School of Social Sciences, Education and Social Work at Queen's University Belfast.
