Informational Call for the OMS Healing Measures Pilot Project

CACs currently participating in NCA’s Outcome Measurement System (OMS) are invited to join a pilot project as part of an exploratory study to examine what healing truly means to youth, caregivers, and multidisciplinary team (MDT) partners served by CACs.  This project is in response to recent research highlighting a lack of person-centered measures of healing in the CAC field, and requests from CACs to establish more specific methods to measure this important area of our work.  In this informational call, CAC staff can learn more about why this project is important and what to expect if your CAC decides to participate.  If your center is a current OMS participant and would like to join the pilot project, please complete the Opt-In Form by September 30, 2021.
