Level of Service Case Management Inventory: LS/CMI  (Andrews, Bonta and Wormith 2004)

      The Level of Service Case Management Inventory (LS/CMI) is an assessment and management tool that incorporates the principles of risk, need and responsivity. It is a substantial revision of the existing, widely used Level of Service Inventory – Revised (LSI-R) assessment tool. LS/CMI was chosen by the Scottish government, the Association of Directors of Social Work and the Scottish Prison Service to provide a common, structured approach in the community and in custodial settings.
      The RMA works closely with Social Work Scotland to undertake a range of evaluations, which can be accessed from the LS/CMI section of the website.
      The RMA hosted a conference in 2015 to present emerging evidence on the use of LS/CMI in Scotland. Copies of the presentations and posters can be accessed here.
