New Social Work and Social Care Strategy Launch

We are delighted to announce the launch of our Social

Work Research Evidence -Supporting Continuous

improvement in Service Outcomes Strategy 2020-2025

(Health &Social Care Board, 2021).

The launch took place at the Research Conference in

March. Jackie McIlroy (DoH) acknowledged she whilst she

was speaking to those who were already converts to

research and evidence she nevertheless reiterate the

importance of research and evidence in social work and

social care.

"Research is so important in promoting health and social

wellbeing, as we explore existing and new interventions to

improve quality of life for our population. Research and

evidence remains so important to the delivery of

efficient and effective services that respond to what

service users and carers need. This requires us to be open

to national and international research to explore best

practice and appropriate evaluation techniques and

application".

The final strategy was the culmination of work

that commenced in 2019 with a review of the

previous strategy (2020-2025) and included a

public consultation exercise that ended October

2020. It is supported by Building and Research

Communality Network. Members of this network

are accountable for progress via the Northern

Ireland Social Work Leadership Network.
