How approaches to qualitative research can support the analysis in Serious Case Reviews: LiPP SCR masterclasses

Part of Safeguarding children

This is one of a series of four Learning into Practice Project Masterclasses produced by the NSPCC and SCIE. The four masterclasses aim to introduce key ideas from the different fields and enable Serious Case Review reviewers to consider their relevance. Specifically focusing on approaches to qualitative research to support serious case reviews, this masterclass introduces the basic theoretical and methodological approaches to producing knowledge in the social sciences and raises awareness of a broad range of debates that constitute these approaches. It explains how to make connections between the methodological and epistemological issues involved in conducting social scientific research and the report authors’ own practice and how to reflect on the social systems that produce particular behaviours. Key topics covered include: the moral and social context of SCRs; how culture affects what we can think and what we say; examples from research on professional practice and organisational systems; and sharing knowledge in complex organisational systems.

Using SCIE resources

Using SCIE resources is a toolkit showing people how SCIE products can be disseminated by social care staff. It will then help them to develop and implement practice. The guide will be of particular interest to those with workforce or service development responsibilities

Social care research capacity consultation

The four central governments of the UK, with the support of the Economic and Social Research Council, asked SCIE to conduct a UK-wide consultation on how to increase social care research capacity. This consultation provides a picture of the views of people concerned about, or who have a stake in, the infrastructure for social care research and development. The report recommendations identify key issues in the consultation that need to be taken into account in strengthening research capacity and in coordinating developments across the UK.
