In Switzerland they have carried out an international analysis of child protection services in countries with an economic level and social development comparable to that of Switzerland. The analysis led to a comparison of good practices which again have resulted in 14 different recommendations for implementation in Switzerland.
One recommendation is to establish a national standing committee with the aim of producing a National Framework for Child Protection. Another recommendation is to create teams of professionally qualified social workers and introduce Case Planning Meetings where all professionals involved in working with families where there might be child protection issues meet in order to produce a service plan.
Interestingly, in these recommendations Switzerland has collated all the best practices of a range of countries. So, in a way, these are the best of the best practise gathered here in a short, understandable and easy to read publication.
