Ontario Common Assessment of Needs (OCAN) community of interest hold a second knowledge exchange event

On June 21, 2018 the Ontario Common Assessment of Needs (OCAN) community of interest held its second annual knowledge exchange event on the use of OCAN for quality improvement to support client recovery. 

The event brought together a diverse group of stakeholders to:

  • Learn about the OCAN Quality Improvement (QI) Network, a project supported by Excellence through Quality Improvement (EQIP) and Community Care Information Management (CCIM)
  • Learn from organizations doing innovative QI projects using OCAN 
  • Hear from researchers using provincial OCAN data to examine client population characteristics, needs and changes over time for service and systems planning
  • Engage in QI activities that you can take back to your organization to enhance client and staff experiences using OCAN
  • Provide feedback to contribute to future enhancements to OCAN and the Integrated Assessment Record (IAR)

It was a packed day, with lots of information sharing, networking and participating in a QI activity.  Participants came away with a stronger understanding of approaches to quality improvement using OCAN data that they can apply in the work.
