What is a Learning Collaborative?

The Learning Collaborative Approach

The Learning Collaborative (LC) approach focuses on spreading, adopting, and adapting best practices across multiple settings and creating changes in organizations that promote the delivery of effective interventions and services. This approach is being adapted from the Breakthrough Series Collaborative (BSC) model, developed by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) and identified within the Kauffman Report as a recommended method for dissemination of best practices. The IHI helps organizations around the world transform “what if” thinking into the reality of better health care for clients and patients everywhere, with a constant focus on innovation, collaboration, and results. For more information about IHI, visit its web site at www.ihi.org.

The BSC approach has been implemented with several national initiatives, largely within healthcare, pediatrics, and foster care. The ultimate goal of this approach for the NCTSN is to promote the dissemination and adoption of trauma-focused treatments and practices in diverse settings, including Network sites and their local communities.
