We are excited to announce the release of the revised Team Observation Measure, the TOM 2.0! WERT's goal was to create a reliable and valid measure of adherence to the Wraparound principles and key elements that is less burdensome and more sensitive to different elements of Wraparound practice implementation. In the revision, WERT was able to remove redundant items, make the language clearer and more consistent, remove non-essential items that showed little variability on the original TOM, and separate the assessment of facilitation skills from fidelity to the Wraparound model.
To Our Valued WFAS Collaborators:
Greetings from Seattle and the University of Washington!
As you know, the mission of the UW Wraparound Evaluation and Research Team is to assist implementation of the Wraparound process and evaluate its effectiveness. We also strive to help collaborating wraparound initiatives and systems of care achieve continuous quality improvement, identify needs for technical assistance and training, and communication with their stakeholders about their successes.
We're planning the next National Wraparound Implementation Academy for Fall 2016 ... your input is needed!
Be sure to join us for the next NWI webinar in the new year.
The webinar will be held Tuesday, January 19, 2016 at 11:00 am PST. This webinar will set the context for the importance of Wraparound quality, fidelity, and implementation supports. A review of the latest innovations, data, and research will be presented on such areas as cost, outcomes, workforce supports, and evidence-based clinical practices.
Greetings from Seattle! Is anyone heading up to the Pacific Northwest to attend the CANS Conference? If so, find WERT and say hello! Eric Bruns, April Sather, and Jennifer Schurer Coldiron will all be in attendance. Eric will be part of the final keynote! We look forward to seeing you in Seattle!
