OACCA Releases CANS Report
OACCA is pleased to announce the release of “Use of the Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths (CANS) in Child Welfare in the United States”. The report was commissioned by OACCA and written by Dr. John S. Lyons, developer of CANS.
The report advances an understanding of: – advantages and disadvantages of using the tool in Ohio’s child welfare system, – how the CANS is used in statewide child welfare systems, and – how the CANS is used as an outcomes management tool by providers and governments.
OACCA is partnering with ODJFS, PCSAs, and our members to explore the best methods to implement CANS in Ohio’s child welfare systems. The report will aid those efforts as it presents a variety of state implementation methods and clarifies the extent of its use with providers, clients, families, and governments.
