About this course

The Child Outcomes Research Consortium (CORC) team will be hosting their 2nd International CORC conference on Friday, 17th June 2016 followed by a memorial tribute for Dr Steve Kingsbury and wine reception

The Child Outcomes Research Consortium (CORC) is a world-leading grassroots collaboration of mental health specialists from over 70 services/member groupings across the UK and beyond. Collaborating organisations of CORC are diverse and include: voluntary and statutory CAMHS providers, Local Authorities, charities, professional bodies and organisations committed to improving outcomes for children. Members collect questionnaire responses from children and families they work with to give them insight into how far they are achieving positive outcomes and how they experience the care they receive. CORC supports it's members to use this information to help them reflect on their service provision, improve practice and support groundbreaking research.
