Implementing Interventions that Link Services Across Systems for Children and Families

Alicia C. Bunger, PhD.
Associate Professor at Ohio State University, College of Social Work
Dr. Bunger’s research addresses the central question: how can human service organizations and professionals work together to improve service access, quality, and outcomes for the communities they serve? Her work is set within the context of behavioral health and child welfare systems and is organized around three domains (1) the role of interorganizational relationships for reducing service fragmentation, (2) knowledge sharing and best practice implementation, and (3) front-line practices that facilitate linkages to effective services. This work is intended to inform policy and managerial strategies that close structural gaps and improve care quality. Currently, she is focusing on implementation of interventions that require collaboration across systems, and is interested in developing practical tools to support executive leaders.
