ANSA – Adult Needs and Strengths Assessment
The ANSA is another TCOM Tool that was developed for adult’s behavioral health services to support decision making, including level of care and service planning, to facilitate quality improvement initiatives, and to allow for the monitoring of outcomes of services. The ANSA is currently used in a number of states and Canada in applications hospitals, emergency departments, psychosocial rehabilitation programs, and ACT programs.
BUT, today Dr. John Lyons is out in San Leandro, California working with ANSA Trainers. We have great partners in Alameda County. Not only do we use these trainings as a refresher on the tool, but we work together to create practice vignettes and identify best ways to support you in your own practice.
