CANE: Camberwell Assessment of Need for the Elderly is a tool for assessing the needs of older people and particularly those with mental health problems. It is based on the Camberwell Assessment of Need, a widely used needs assessment for people with severe mental illness. Needs are assessed in 24 areas of life and cover a broad range of health, social and psychological domains. Also included are two items that assess the needs of those who care for the older person.The CANE is a comprehensive assessment instrument, suitable for both research and clinical use. This book contains chapters on its development, and its application in various settings and populations, such as day hospitals, sheltered housing, primary care, acute hospital wards, services for early-onset dementia, and long-term care settings. There are also chapters on its use in Spain and Germany. Both the full version CANE and short version (CANES) are included in photocopiable format, along with a detailed manual, a full training programme and scoring guidance.The CANE has been rigorously developed by a multi-disciplinary team at University College London in collaboration with other academic centres, and is suitable for use in all settings involving older persons.
