BC's Children in Care: Improving Data and Outcomes Reporting
This report will look at the use of data in reviewing progress and outcomes for children in care and children at risk in British Columbia. This perspective is an important complement to the focus on child deaths and the reviews that should be associated with those deaths.
The systemic review of unexpected child deaths is one important way of looking into the processes by which we monitor and evaluate how the childcare system has served those children most at risk. A focus on fully understanding what might have prevented specific deaths may allow us to draw general conclusions.
