CCMI’s communications services focus on developing skills and strategies for clear and compassionate communication between caregivers and the people and families that they support.
Thanks to collaborators and practitioners who have assisted with the following worksheets for people to use to record their Brief Action Plans.

In this video Connie Davis explains how to use teach-back, a method to check that information has been communicated clearly. To download the handout, visit the handouts section on this page.
The BRAIN (Benefits, Risks, Alternatives, Intuition, Next Steps) app is based on our popular worksheet. The app and worksheet both are designed to help you to think about the Benefits, Risks, and Alternatives to a decision. Then they ask you what your gut or intuition says and it help you to clarify the next steps that make sense to you.
The app is available for apple devices in the apple app store by searching CCMI BRAIN or going here
