Implementation Groups Update
The Participation Workers Group met on the 10th November. The group heard updates on the latest participation work taking place across the Collaborative, and shared tips for increasing engagement with involvement work in services. We went through a demonstration of the hackathon apps and encouraged attendees to use the products in their service.
The next PWG meeting is Thursday, 12th January - details TBC.
The LAC group met on 21st September in a new combined meeting format with CPLACC (Clinical Psychologists working with Looked After and Adopted Children). The group heard presentations from Martina Paglia, about her research and recommendations for outcome measurement for LAC and out of area placement strategy, and Matt Woolgar about Attachment in Practice. After this, the session continued previous work aiming to arrive at recommendations for use of outcome measures in direct work and consultation and a statement about therapeutic work with LAC.
The next LAC meeting will be 25th January - details TBC.

The last Under 5s group in September saw the launch of the Under 5s CYP IAPT training course, as well as presentations about the Early Intervention Foundation review of early years interventions and transformation in perinatal services. The group set to work in the afternoon, deliberating measures that might be included in a recommended measures set for Under 5's services. This piece of work is still ongoing and will be continued at the next meeting.
The next Under 5's meeting will be in January
The last LD implementation group pushed itself to come up with a consensus on guidance for measures to use for outcomes monitoring across LD services - the group produced a 'product' that has gained traction at a regional national level being presented at the CAMHS nation conference earlier in the year and presented to commissioners across London a Healthy London Partnership event - copies of the LD outcomes guidance can be found here.
The next LD meeting is TBC
