Selected Current IPRC Projects
LONGSCAN legacy translated into current policy and practice recommendations
using innovative translation and dissemination strategy funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation
From Science to Practice:
effective dissemination and translation of findings from the Longitudinal Studies of Child Abuse and Neglect (LONGSCAN). The ground-breaking, 20-year LONGSCAN
study ended in 2011. LONGSCAN followed 1354 children and their primary caregivers from early childhood through age 18 at five study sites throughout the country, and was coordinated at UNC IPRC. The importance of effective dissemination of these findings was recognized by both the Office of Child Abuse and Neglect, which funded LONGSCAN, and by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, which funds this unique dissemination effort. Each of the five LONGSCAN study sites will convene a regional meeting to discuss its key research findings and develop policy and practice recommendations based on these findings. Meetings will include a wide range of key stakeholders, including representatives from, among others, child welfare, child advocacy organizations, public health, policy makers, law, education, mental health, medicine, adults who were clients of the child welfare system as children, and former LONGSCAN participants. The recommendations from each of these meetings will be shared at a meeting in Washington DC in 2013.
The dataset is archived with the National Data Archive on Child Abuse and Neglect. http://www.ndacan.cornell.edu/
