Ontario's largest children's mental health agency proves treatment and family programs, child care centers. autism services and youth justice services, in addition to operating an outdoor center. As part of a strategic planning process, the agency identified a key priority to transform clinical practices by implementing Evidence Based Practices (EBP's) across all services of the agency.
The Osborne Group was engaged as Project Manager for the Clinical Transformation Project. In this capacity, the Project Lead was responsible for developing and monitoring adherence to the critical path and budget, organization and leadership of the Steering Committee, providing direction to multiple project teams, and coordination of all related activities. The change management process which was used for the multi-year project was that developed by Dean Fixsen of the National Implementation Research Network.
The Project Manager worked alongside the staff at all levels who were actually completing the work assignment whether it was a Clinical Director or a front line worker. The Project Manager educated all participants in the change process and was a major champion/spokesperson through the duration of the project for the new way of operating. The extensive documentation of the process that exists on the agency's sharepoint application means that all the working papers of every staff-led group is available to the agency for reference and development. This included a timeline/chronology of the entire project created by The Osborne Group of key developments and decisions throughout the process.
As part of the Fixsen model, the agency created a Clinical transformation "Practice Leader" role to ensure ongoing fidelity to the model.SUCCESS STORY
