CARS provides screening, diagnostic information, and referral for continuing care. More specifically, CARS includes a reliable and valid instrument adapted from the Composite International Diagnostic Interview (CIDI) for lay workers to gather psychiatric information about clients who otherwise would not have access to such information. Built on open access software, this instrument is easy to use and freely available. However, despite the ease of use, there are aspects of the system that some organizations might decide requires further customization or web-based or in-person training to help CARS better fit within their organization. There might be need to add questions or modules based on organizational protocols or local, state, or federal regulations.
No matter your organization’s size or need, we are willing to work with you to develop the CARS software customization and staff training program to help make your use of CARS successful. If you would like to speak with us about customization or training opportunities for your organization, please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
