May 16, 2024, 2:00 – 3:00 PM ET was the State Technical Assistance Webinar (STAW). This STAW was the second in a series of Quality Improvement (QI) 101 topics. Though we would like you to join us for the entire series, each STAW is a complete event.  

During the STAW we focused on how to identify and access national, state, and local data to inform child safety work. A variety of data sources were explored and state examples across child safety areas were shared. Participants came ready to share challenges they face in their practice and asked questions on how to identify, access, and use available data sets to inform their child safety work.
