On November 25, 2021, EENet hosted a facilitated virtual discussion, facilitated by the Ontario Common Assessment of Need (OCAN) Community of Interest. Participants heard from four panelists about how their organization uses the OCAN tool during the COVID-19 pandemic, the challenges that have been faced, and solutions that have been implemented.
During this event participants learned:
- how your organization can improve the use of OCAN during the pandemic
- how organizations can pivot during uncertain times
- the changes some organizations have made and what they plan to sustain as a result of this experience.
