Making CARE-Planning Less Complicated: A Template for Better Implementation.

The Northern Health and Social Care Trust of Northern Ireland presents a planning tool to assist residential child care practitioners in integrating the CARE program model into their practice. The HCS team created the "CARE-Giving Journey Planner" based on their own experiences in establishing a CARE-based practice. The CARE tools "are ultimately aimed at increasing the congruence and applicability of CARE-based language and practice; prioritising preciseness and pragmatism in the interests of everyday use. It is hoped that through such mediums, the fundamentals of CARE can continue to live and breathe in the daily interactions with our children and families."
