Strategies to Promote Research Use in Child Welfare

Increasing the use of research evidence in decision-making is critical to ensuring that agencies effectively serve families in producing intended outcomes, including the safe achievement of legal permanency through reunification, adoption, or guardianship. This document provides a catalog of strategies drawn from several fields (social work, public health, education) and research traditions (implementation science, utilization-focused evaluation, social research and development (R&D), and translational research). It is intended to offer strategies, examples of use and impact, and key factors for consideration to help researchers and organizations develop approaches that will improve knowledge-sharing with child welfare professionals and policy-makers in order to best serve children and families.
