The RAF method for regulation, assessment, and follow-up is aimed at improving the quality of care provided by an institution or a service using a more objective, systematic, and uniform method of regulation. This chapter provides a retrospective report on the collaboration between the Myers-JDC-Brookdale Institute and the Children and Youth Services in implementing the RAF system. It presents an overview of the project and its context, a description of the RAF method, and an account of its impact on the Children and Youth Services system of residential settings for children at risk. It also describes the project's mode of operation and identify the key actions taken. Finally, it discusses the lessons learned about the ways in which data can have an impact on practitioners.
