The professional development activities include live training, technical assistance, coaching, office hours and the development of practice communities. The CANS is a support tool in the clinical decision-making process to determine eligibility into OhioRISE and level of care and service planning. The Ohio CANS assessment tool has been developed for broad application across multiple systems, including youth involved in child protection,developmental disability, department of youth services, and mental health and addiction. This ensures youth only need to go through one assessment across multiple providers. The tool gathers all dimensions of the youth and family story to determine needs and strengths and integrates multiple storytellers capturing the voice of the youth and family to produce a full consensus-based assessment. The CANS is updated routinely over the course of treatment to continue ongoing care planning.

Training and Certification
Ohio CANS assessors must maintain certification in the new Ohio Children’s Initiative CANS with the Praed Foundation. In order to be eligible for certification a new assessor needs to demonstrate completion of live, virtual training in the following (2) areas: TCOM (Transformational Collaborative Outcomes Management) and Ohio Children’s Initiative CANS Comprehensive Assessment. Both required training areas are provided during one full day training. If a professional was previously certified in a previous version of the CANS, they will need to complete the Ohio Children’s Initiative live TCOM and Ohio Children’s Initiative CANS training session as there is no longer a booster training  offered. The booster was offered July 2021-February 2022. Below you will find training dates, times and registration links for our April and May offerings. If you have questions about how to register for CANS training sessions, please email hxd256@case.edu.

CANS Office Hours
The Center of Excellence’s CANS Office Hours will create an opportunity for those professionals who are currently using or preparing to use the CANS in practice to ask individualized questions, gain targeted technical assistance as well as receive coaching support. Registration is required and each session is limited to 20 participants per one hour of Office Hours. Office Hours will be conducted virtually and in group format. We look forward to learning with you! If you have questions about how to register for CANS Office hours, please email hxd256@case.edu
