The Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths (CANS) and the Childhood Severity of Psychiatric Illness (CSPI) are collaboratively completed measures of child and family strengths and needs. These evidence-based, standardized assessments were developed to support decision-making, including level of care and intervention planning, to facilitate quality improvement initiatives, and to allow for the monitoring of clinical and functional outcomes. As a communication tool, they facilitate the linkage between the assessment process and the design of individualized service plans.
This presentation provides an overview of the Illinois-Medicaid versions of the CANS and CSPI and Transformational Collaborative Outcomes Management (TCOM). TCOM’s overall framework, key concepts and how its multilevel approach directly benefits children and families will be discussed. The principles and best practices in using the CANS and CSPI as TCOM’s assessment strategy, a communication framework, and tools to monitor outcomes and inform care plans will also be addressed. Using mock vignettes and small group activities, this 6-hour, interactive session will prepare users for certification and use of the IM-CANS and IM-CSPI.
