Moving From ‘What we Know Works’ to ‘What we do in Practice’: An Evidence Overview of Implementation and Diffusion of Innovation in Transition to Adulthood for Care Experienced Young People – Child and Family Social Work Journal

Summary

Access to the Child and Family Social Work journal evidence review of implementation and diffusion of innovation in transitions to adulthood for care experienced young people.

Description

Child and Family Social Work Journal has published ‘Moving from ‘what we know works’ to ‘what we do in practice’: An evidence overview of implementation and diffusion of innovation in transition to adulthood for care experienced young people (February 2023)’.

Research globally has shown that most young people who are care experienced are not prepared to transition to independent living at 18 years of age and require support into early adulthood.
The literature reviewed 25 papers and found that, whilst there are a broad spectrum of innovations taking place within the social care environment for care experienced young people to support their transition into adulthood, there exists limited insight into how best to support implementation and diffusion of evidence-based innovation.
