Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Children and Family Services Act. Requires the Inspector General of the Department of Children and Family Services to develop Error Reduction Training (rather than Error Reduction Implementation Plans) to remedy patterns of errors or problematic practices that compromise or threaten the safety of children as identified in the DCFS Office of the Inspector General (OIG) death or serious injury investigations, Child Death Review Teams recommendations, or by the Director of the Department. Provides that the Error Reduction Training shall include both classroom and web-based trainings; and that the Inspector General's Office shall develop the curricula, provide for the initial training presentations, and collaborate with, and as needed, use the Child Protection Training Academy simulation model. Provides that initial trainings shall include, but not be limited to, strengthening critical thinking, decision-making, interviewing, analytical, and problem-solving skills, as well as practice reviews and recertifications. Requires the Department's Division of Quality Enhancement to identify outcome measures and track compliance with the training curriculum following the initial training roll-out by the Office of the Inspector General. Contains provisions concerning quarterly reports; related duties of the Department's Office of Learning and Professional Development; semi-annual public reports detailing the substance of any Error Reduction Training and other matters; OIG evaluations and reviews on the instructional integrity of the training; and other matters.
