Since 2004, the Queensland child protection system has undergone a period of significant reform. This has resulted in changes to all aspects of the child protection system including legislation, policies and practices, information management systems, recording practices, staffing and services. As a consequence, data for a number of key measures are not strictly comparable across years.
The summary of key child protection system reforms from 2003-04 onward highlights the events in Queensland's child protection history that have impacted on performance figures.
