As a result of the opiate crisis, child welfare agencies have experienced an increase in the number of children in foster care as parental substance use puts children at greater risk of maltreatment. To facilitate implementation of the Sobriety Treatment and Recovery Team (START) model, this study (1) identifies collaborative strategies associated with effective implementation and service outcomes given system and organizational context, (2) uses this evidence to specify strategies and develop a decision support guide to help agency leaders select collaborative strategies, and (3) assesses the feasibility, acceptability, and appropriateness of the decision support guide.
This is a multi-staged, mixed methods study that leverages a naturally occurring policy experiment in southern Ohio. In aim 1, we will examine the collaborative strategies associated with implementation and service outcomes, given the context with 17 counties engaged in the Ohio START pilot project. We will use a convergent mixed methods design, and integrate our qualitative and quantitative data using qualitative comparative analysis. For aim 2, we will specify the collaborative strategies and develop a decision support guide using the VA's model of implementation strategy development (diagnose barriers, and convene an expert panel to design strategies). For aim 3, we assess the feasibility, acceptability, and appropriateness of the decision support guide using a sequential mixed methods design. In the first quantitative phase, we will conduct a randomized vignette experiment with agency directors in the 71 Ohio counties that are not involved in the Ohio START pilot project to compare the decision support guide with general implementation support. Our second qualitative phase (which is dominant), will examine feasibility more in-depth by piloting the guide and conducting descriptive case studies with up to three new counties.

Electronic toolkit intended to help organizational leaders select partners and negotiate partnerships for implementation. This will contain: 1) a brief summary of collaboration approaches associated with implementation, 2) detailed descriptions of collaboration strategies, 3) a decision analysis tool that guides the selection of collaborative strategies given the community context, and 4) sample contract or agreement language that specifies the nature of the partnership and expectations.
