Join us at Reinventing Quality, 2016Jun 20th, 2016
Come join NCI team members at the Reinventing Quality Conference, July 31-August 2, 2016 in Baltimore, MD
The following presentations are focused on NCI:
Rights, Choice, and Control: What Do the Data Say?
Celia Feinstein, Temple University, Stephanie Giordano, Human Services Research Institute, Mary Kay Cunningham, Temple University, Bill Krebs, Self-Advocate
The National Core Indicators (NCI) are standard measures used across states to assess the outcomes of services provided to individuals and families. Indicators address key areas including employment, rights, service planning, community inclusion, choice, and health and safety. The 40 states involved collect information form approximately 400-600 randomly selected service participants. In Pennsylvania, the sample has been expanded significantly so that Independent Monitoring for Quality (IM4Q, PA’s version of the National Core Indicators) can be a cornerstone of the state’s quality management system. Panelists will talk about the NCI and IM4Q data sets, specifically in the areas of Dignity, Respect, Rights, Choice and Control.
Scaling up Progressive Practices: What does NCI tell us about System Readiness, Challenges, and Opportunities?
Valerie Bradley, Human Services Research Institute, Alixe Bonardi, Human Services Research Institute, Dorothy Hiersteiner, Human Services Research Institute
This panel will include NCI data on areas of the intellectual and developmental disability (ID/DD) system including self-direction, employment, exercise of choice, and friendships. These areas should form targets for efforts to “scale” up progressive practices. The presentation will also include NCI data on DSP turnover rates and alignment with the HCBS settings rule. These data can point to the readiness of the service system to enhance and expand person-centered practices.
Several other presentations will address NCI and its applications. HERE is the agenda.
We hope to see you there!
