Supervision of child and youth care homes from a risk and quality perspective

Inspired by the Scottish model for supervision of child and youth care homes, the Swedish Inspectorate of Health and Welfare (IVO) is currently working on a pilot project developing a new framework for supervision. The aim of the project is that IVO in the future will contribute more in making a difference for children and youth who live in care homes. This will be achieved by:

1)      Basing the supervision on what is essential to children and youth

2)      Focusing on the care homes that have the biggest shortcomings

3)      Ensuring that IVO gets a summarizing review of the quality of all care homes based on a risk analysis

The project includes an environmental perspective on risk and quality in care homes, both in Sweden and abroad. The investigators Anna Öström and Ann-Christine Pettersson are the project leaders of this pilot project and on the 16th of April they will attend the EPSO Risk working group to present and discuss their current pilot project.
