Each year, the Praed Foundation hosts an international conference. Formerly known as the CANS Conference, the annual TCOM Conference is held in the fall of each year in a variety of cities across the country. We have attendees and presentations from almost every state and a few countries each year that are reflective of the use of TCOM and it’s tools.
For those of you who are new to the team, TCOM stands for TRANSFORMATIONAL COLLABORATIVE OUTCOMES MANAGEMENT. TCOM is the conceptual framework for the ANSA, CANS and FAST.
history of the conference:
The conferences began in 2004 and used to be called the CANS Conference. The CANS (Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths) was the first tool developed under the TCOM framework in the theory of Communimetrics .
Since then, the entire collaboration has grown and the tools have expanded to reflect the breadth and depth of the population we all serve.
