What is an Umbrella Summary?

The QIC-WD is pleased to announce the launch of a new series that highlights findings from the workforce literature to address key child welfare workforce challenges.

An umbrella summary is a synopsis of the published meta-analyses of a specific workforce topic. Meta-analyses are studies that synthesize results across many individual studies to arrive at overall conclusions. The QIC-WD is reviewing the research and summarizing it in a straight-forward question-and-answer format for child welfare professionals. We plan to release more than 50 umbrella summaries over the next 12-24 months on topics such as burnout, grit, turnover, and emotional intelligence.
