Evidence of Efficacy

Evidence of Efficacy

    The St. John’s Home considers its efforts a short-term success when the following outcomes can be observed as based on the agency’s Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) logic model and as determined by the clinical treatment team which includes the child, his parent(s) and/or legal guardian(s), the WV DHHR or placement worker and the St. John’s Home staff:  

  1. The child and family achieve or make progress on 75% of targeted treatment plan objectives as measured by our monthly treatment plan tracking sheets.
  2. 80% of our children make improvement in their level of Functioning as measured by the Child and Adolescent Functional Assessment Scale (CAFAS).
  3. 90 % of our children attain/maintain a minimum 2.0 Grade Point Average (GPA) as measured by Ohio County Schools report cards.
  4. 80% of our children are discharged to a lesser restrictive environment as measured by discharge placement.
  5.  80% of our children demonstrate a decreased level of involvement in high-risk/critical incident behavior from time of admission to time of discharge as measured by critical incident reports/service documentation

Evidence of long-term efficacy of the St. John’s Home program will be the clear demonstration of a successful reunification of the family for at least one year.
