Suzanne Button, PhD
March 23, 2018
9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Transformational Collaborative Outcomes has demonstrated potential in the improvement of services to individuals and families in diverse human serving systems. Through use of TCOM overall framework for practice transformation and outcomes management, practitioners and systems can improve care, increase effectiveness and efficiency, and elevate the voice of individuals and families served through measurement of meaningful, salient outcomes measures. The Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths (CANS), is one of the TCOM suite of tools. This evidence-based, standardized assessment was developed to support decision-making, to facilitate quality improvement initiatives, and to allow for the monitoring of clinical and functional outcomes. As a communication tool, it facilitates the linkage between the assessment process and the design of individualized service plans. Part I of this presentation is open to service providers and supervisors, and provides a brief review of Transformational Collaborative Outcomes Management (TCOM), Communimetrics, and the TCOM suite of collaborative assessment tools. Principles, best practices, and strategies for using the CANS as a consensus-based assessment tool and a vehicle for collaborative engagement, collaborative goal-setting, and treatment planning will be reviewed.
