This chapter opens with a summary of advice on interviewing people with intellectual disabilities. Then the need rating algorithm is provided, as it applies to CANDID-S and Section 1 of CANDID-R. Need ratings of met (M), unmet (U) and no need (N) represent a change from the numerical ratings of CANDID 1st edition. Furthermore, a set of frequently asked questions and comprehensive answers is provided. The questions are applicable to both CANDID-S and CANDID-R.
A comprehensive training programme for completing the CANDID is described. It covers both versions of CANDID and provides all training slides and notes for the trainer. Learning points covered are the background to the CAN approach, the policy background to needs assessment in intellectual disabilities services, the concept of need, research using CANDID thus far, CANDID domains, need rating (no need, met need, unmet need), CANDID rating algorithm, structure of the CANDID (including trigger questions, anchor points, perceptions of help of interventions, and the differences between staff, service user and informal carers assessment of needs. Two case vignettes are provided along with expected ratings. A role play is suggested in order to give participants the opportunity to learn, practice or consolidate needs assessment using CANDID. A discussion focusses on the rationale behind each rating,
The Camberwell Assessment of Need for Adults with Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities (CANDID) is introduced. It was developed at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London in 1999, and published in book form in 2003. It was developed by modification of the Camberwell Assessment of Need (CAN), the most widely used needs assessment approach for people with severe mental health problems. In addition to CANDID, a number of other variants of CAN have been developed including needs assessment for forensic patients, for mothers and pregnant women, for older adults and for people in disaster and relief situations. In this 2nd edition, the need rating for the presence or absence of need and met or unmet needs is discussed. In addition, a need rating algorithm has been introduced. Both changes are in line with changes in the 2nd edition CAN. Moreover, the terminology in this 2nd edition has changed to reflect terminology used in contemporary intellectual disabilities services.
The Camberwell Assessment of Need for adults with Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities (CANDID) is a widely used tool for the assessment of health and social needs of people with intellectual disabilities and mental health problems. It uses the assessment approach adopted by CAN, the world's leading mental health needs assessment measure. Two versions of the CANDID are available: CANDID-S (short version) and CANDID-R (research version). Both versions are aimed at researchers and practitioners working with people with intellectual disabilities, and are suitable for clinical use in community and hospital-based services. Fully updated based on current policy, practice and terminology, this second edition introduces a more intuitive need rating system and an accessible rating algorithm. Guidance on how to use the measures is provided, as well as an overview of research developments since the first edition. The assessment forms are freely available to download from the CAN website (researchintorecovery.com/can) and cambridge.org.
