NOV/DEC 2018 | 10 The Nexus CANS serves as the thread that weaves together the context for individualized treatment and services from the time a youth is referred until after they leave our care. In the larger clinical world, this is known as “The Golden Thread.” Our example of the Golden Thread is illustrated at top right. But there is still much work to be done. The Nexus Clinical Department is working to continually improve our overall application of this Golden Thread by weaving it even further into the clinical fabric supporting all our programming. We offer the bottom visual at right to represent this process. The Nexus CANS application will meet the three Chapin Hall objectives by supporting decision-making, facilitating quality improvement initiatives, and monitoring the effectiveness and outcomes of service delivery. Together with our ongoing Learning Collaborative meetings, regular data and clinical dashboard reviews, and fidelity to the new training models for incoming personnel, our model for interventions and programming using the CANS is strong. 2019 CANS Objectives • 10 Quality Learning Collaborative sessions tied to the Nexus Practice Model • Activating technology resources to make aggregate data available seamlessly for each clinician, program team, site, CQI, and the Nexus Board • Strengthening the Online Training to include a video of the Nexus Practice Model – CANS application • Ensuring CANS are visible, relevant on each case, and are used to aide case monitoring and outcomes
