CANS–NY Supervisor Training 

This full–day training gives an overview of the ways that the CANS–NY has been used to meaningfully manage different service sectors in New York. Additionally, it provides a developmental and cultural framework for the implementation of TCOM and the CANS–NY in supervision and care management. Care management supervisors will learn how to supervise around collaborative assessment, care planning, and progress monitoring with the CANS–NY. Strategies for supporting cultural humility and culturally responsive care, and integrating CANS–NY information into individual supervision and team development are presented. Time will be provided for supervisors to practice skills presented and participate in small–group discussion of relevant issues that arise in supervising the CANS–NY in Health Home care management.
