Synopsis: The Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths assessment (CANS) serves as the primary clinical tool for the Dawn Project in Indianapolis, Indiana and Hamilton Choices in Cincinnati, Ohio. Learn how these systems of care worked with their community partners and management teams to develop customized versions of the CANS. The CANS has been integrated into the projectsÕ information management system, allowing care coordinators to directly link their treatment and safety plans to the needs and strengths identified in the CANS. The CANS will be used to determine level of care, make placement decisions and improve clinical decision making.
