Researchers Look to Improve Child Abuse Response with Collaborate

Using CANS Assessments, CACGA and the University of Kentucky are embarking on an important study.

The Collaborate team is always excited about opportunities to mine data to better serve victims of abuse. Now, Children’s Advocacy Centers of Georgia and the University of Kentucky are embarking on a study to do just that, using standardized assessments integrated into statewide case management software.

CANS Assessments are a set of evaluation tools developed by the John Praed Foundation, which allow social workers to screen children based on:

  • Individual Strengths,
  • Life Functioning,
  • Behavioral/Emotional Needs,
  • and Risk Behaviors Domains.

By linking these factors with individualized Service plans, advocates can dramatically improve Client care. CANS-specific Reports facilitate this process, making Collaborate an ideal platform for Child Advocates and researchers alike.
