Child and Adolescent Needs & Strengths (CANS)

The CANS is a multiple purpose information integration tool that is designed to be the output of an assessment process.  The purpose of the MAINE CANS is to accurately represent the shared vision of the child/youth serving system—children, youth, and families.  The MAINE CANS will support decision making, including level of care and treatment planning, for the child/youth, family and others involved in planning process.

The CANS assessment is a separate required questionnaire in the Atrezzo portal.
The completed CANS assessment will be required to be entered into Atrezzo at each continued stay review. A copy of the questionnaire will also be located on the KEPRO website at www.qualitycareforme.com
