Training Interdisciplinary Educational Scientists
Fall 2010 Proseminar Series

This presentation will describe prevailing theoretical models, challenges, and strategies to studying the implementation and dissemination of quality improvement practices within state mental health systems serving youth and families. Studies within New York State’s outpatient mental health system will be highlighted. Quality improvement in state systems require attention to multiple dynamic levels of change: state policy, agency structure and financing, staff team organizational context, and parent and youth factors. Findings from studies targeting change processes at one or more of these levels will be described.
