Our Commitment to Quality Services

At Nexus, we know it’s not enough to say we provide quality treatment and lasting outcomes. We need to achieve it for you and your family, and prove it through practice.

That’s why we are dedicated to a process of Continuous Quality Improvement — a Plan-Do-Study-Act cycle:

  • Examining data to understand current conditions and establish a baseline (Plan)
  • Collecting and analyzing data (Study), and
  • Interpreting data and planning next steps (Do)

We use information collected through our process to guide decisions that improve outcomes for your child and family.

In 2016, we added a new piece to our data collection system: the Nexus Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths (CANS) tool.

The CANS helps us more accurately assess your child’s needs and strengths at admission, during treatment, and when your child is ready to leave our care.

We also use information from the CANS to observe trends and changes across Nexus programs and sites and evaluate how the Nexus Practice Model is being integrated across our sites.

Continuous Quality Improvement is just one element of our dedication to ensuring quality care and lasting outcomes for your child and your family
