Improving Child Well-Being: Strengthening Collaboration Between the Child Welfare and Health Care Systems is available for download.

This brief authored by the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s PolicyLab & Safe Place, explores collaborations—old and new—between child welfare and medical providers.

It serves as a resource for states seeking to strengthen these collaborations across the continuum of child welfare services from CPS reporting and investigation to in-home protective services, foster care, and post-reunification services.

  • Part I describes the national policy context related to the promotion of child health and well-being by the child welfare system.
  • Part II examines promising and proven collaborative models related to the reporting and investigation of child maltreatment and the ongoing provision of child welfare services to children and families.
  • Part III concludes with a discussion about future directions for partnerships between child welfare and health care systems.
