The National Quality Improvement Center on Differential Response in Child Protective Services (QIC-DR) is a five-year project to generate and disseminate new knowledge about differential response practices and strategies in child protective service systems. QIC-DR has three primary goals: (1) Design and conduct evaluation, to rigorously study implementation, outcomes and cost impact of differential response in research and demonstration sites; (2) Learn if differential response is an effective approach in CPS; and (3) Build cutting-edge, innovative and replicable knowledge about differential response, including guidance on best practices in differential response.
