Free text Case review, designed to promote adequate and appropriate planning and service delivery for children in foster care, is expected to reduce time in foster care and to lead to permanent placement outcomes. This article reports the results of a study on impact of external citizen review (a form of case review) initiated 14 to 45 days after a child entered the court system. Comparison were made between two study groups to determine the impact of early citizen review on services planned and provided, courts delays, completeness of the written case plans, number of placements, time in placement, and achievement of permanent placement. Implications for policy and practice are discussed. The authors affirm that the regular and meaningful inclusion of all interested parties (children, parents, grandparents and other family members, substitute caregivers, guardians and court-appointed special advocates) in case planning results in more specific and accurate case plans with long-terms goals and better service provision.
