12. CANE assessment and manual.
The Camberwell Assessment of Need for the Elderly (CANE) is an internationally accepted tool for assessing the needs of older people. Needs are assessed in twenty-four areas of life and cover a broad range of health, social and psychological domains. Two items that measure the needs of those who care for the older person are also included. The CANE is suitable for use in research, clinical practice and for evaluating health and social services provided to older people. It has been used for over twenty years in a range of settings, populations and countries. This book outlines the evidence for its use in effectively measuring the needs of older people across primary care, community, inpatient and care home settings. Both the full version CANE and short version (CANE-S) are included, along with a detailed manual and scoring guidance. The assessment forms are freely available to download from researchintorecovery.com/can and cambridge.org.
- Contains blank forms of the measures for scanning or photocopying, and downloadable versions are also freely available on the CAN website (researchintorecovery.com/can) and the Cambridge University Press website (cambridge.org)
- No additional training is needed for the assessment to be completed by healthcare workers or researchers
- Assesses unmet needs in older populations, which can be used to identify gaps in service provision for health and social services, helping to identify health inequalities for older people and enabling services to change and plan resources
- Identifies priorities for future needs assessment research related to older people
- Highlights the adaptability of the CANE assessment tool for use in a range of different settings and contexts
