This At a glance summary presents a new ‘systems’ model for case reviews. The model provides a method for getting to the bottom of professional practice and exploring why actions or decisions that later turned out to be mistaken, or to have led to an unwanted outcome, seemed to those involved, to be the sensible thing to do at the time.

Part of Learning Together
The Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) worked in collaboration with the London Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) to pilot the SCIE Learning Together model for case reviews in seven London Local Safeguarding Children Boards (LSCBs). This report presents on some of the interim findings from the (LSCBs) participating in the pilots of the SCIE Learning Together model. It draws primarily on verbal feedback provided by Lead Reviewers over the course of the training, and includes direct quotations. Issues discussed include the engagement of staff and implementation issues. The report aims to share with non-participating LSCBs the experience of taking part in the pilot.
SCIE has led in the development of a new 'systems approach' for conducting case reviews of multi-agency safeguarding and child protection work. This video looks at the first pilots of the SCIE model which were completed in the North West of England in September 2010.
This At a glance summarises learning from piloting of the SCIE 'systems' approach in the North West of England.
Finding excellence in adult social care services: an overview of selected approaches to excellence in social care
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) commissioned the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) to define excellence in adult social care service in England to inform the CQCs new quality information scheme for regulated adult care services. This overview looks at some of the tools currently in use to measure quality in social care, many of which informed our final definition.
This knowledge review looks at the use of research by social care staff and how it can be promoted to improve social care practice. It describes what knowledge is available, highlights the evidence that has emerged and draws practice points from the evidence.
This report provides a number of examples of research that are deliberately or inadvertently developing methods for synthesising evidence from diverse sources. It is a part of a larger SCIE programme of work focused on using knowledge in social care. It provides a partial picture of methodological work synthesising evidence from research using diverse research designs. It looks at work both on the synthesis of qualitative evidence and on the synthesis of qualitative and quantitative evidence.
