An overview of how to use the Tuituia framework and information on each of the domains and subdomains, including dynamic risk factors.
Guidance for using the Summary of needs and strengths and Why we are involved and what we are worried about sections of the Tuituia recording tool.
We use the intake decision response tool (DRT) to decide on the appropriate report of concern response pathway when we receive information or concerns for tamariki, including those in care.
Use these prompts to gather and assess as much information as possible from the person reporting the concerns about te tamaiti.
When we determine a report of concern requires a statutory response, we must decide the timeframe to complete the safety and risk screen.
We use contact records, casenotes, or reports of concern to record decision responses. For tamariki in care, we also talk directly with the allocated social worker or their supervisor.
The safety and risk screen identifies if immediate action by Oranga Tamariki is required to secure the safety of te tamaiti or rangatahi.
The consult aims to increase safety for te tamaiti or rangatahi by using the existing strengths and resources of the whānau or family to address areas of danger or harm.
The SKS screens help us assess whether te tamaiti is dealing with substance abuse issues, suffering from psychological distress, or at risk of death by suicide.
A gateway assessment is an interagency process that helps to clarify and identify ways to address the health and education needs of tamariki we work with.
The Three Houses are a visual way to identify strengths, risks and vulnerabilities as well as the hopes and dreams of te tamaiti and their whānau or family.
Scaling questions are a valuable assessment tool. They assume that things happen on a continuum and open up room for discussion about what could be different.
