Home Visiting Webinar: Child Maltreatment Data

Addressing Benchmark Two - Child Maltreatment Data: Informed Consent, Data Sharing Agreements, and Defining Data Elements for Improvement

This webinar addresses common questions and issues related to child maltreatment data collection for the Maternal, Infant,and Early Childhood Home Visiting benchmarks. Discussion addresses elements to include in informed consent when collecting data from child welfare agencies, protection of client rights, and other issues related to child maltreatment data necessary to define and demonstrate improvement.

Benchmark Two relates to child injuries, child abuse, neglect or maltreatment, and reduction of emergency department visits. To obtain these data, many grantees are partnering with child welfare agencies. The first presentation in the webinar addresses many of the critical elements needed to initiate conversation, define what is needed, and to ensure a smooth transfer of data from these agencies.

The second presentation discusses the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System or NCANDS and its relevance to Benchmark Two.
