Collaborative Service Delivery (CSD):
Recently through many different discussions it has become clear that there is some confusion amongst organizations regarding the understanding of the term Collaborative Services Delivery (CSD). CSD is intended to be an approach in delivering services to Alberta Children and Families under the umbrella of the Child Intervention Practice Framework (CIPF). This approach is being achieved but limited to initiatives such as; the Foundation of Caregiver Support, CSD lead sites, Family Finding and Signs of Safety. Collaborative Service Delivery Leads Table are meeting to discuss future direction of the table.
