Child & Family Services Review Instrument

U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Administration on Children, Youth and Families Onsite Review Instrument and Instructions http://www.acf.hhs.gov/programs/cb/cwmonitoring/tools_guide/onsitefinal.htm. The Onsite Review Instrument is used to review both foster care and in-home services cases during the onsite review component of the Child and Family Services Reviews (CFSRs) of State child welfare agencies. In completing the Onsite Review Instrument, reviewers will conduct case file reviews and case-related interviews with children, parents, foster parents, caseworkers, and other professionals involved with the child. The instrument is organized into a Face Sheet and three sections. The three sections focus on the outcome domains that form the basis of the CFSRs: safety, permanency, and child and family well-being. For each outcome, reviewers collect information on a number of items related to that outcome.
