    The Case Manager's Handbook, Fifth EditionThe praise keeps on coming for The Case Manager’s Handbook, Fifth Edition by Catherine Mullahy. We’ve just received some outstanding testimonials from a wide-variety of leaders in the case manager community. Take a look!

    “I would use this book in formal courses, training programs, or as a resource manual for new as well as experienced case managers because it provides the most comprehensive overview of case management available on the market today. It is particularly excellent because of the Navigate Companion Website. Case managers working in the field and providing direct patient management would find this an excellent resource for their practice as well as to prepare for a variety of case management certification examinations. I am convinced after reading this text that it will be a most useful tool to prepare for any of the current certification exams. I highly recommend this text and will encourage adoption of it in our case management courses and definitely in the courses that I teach.” – Marietta Stanton, PhD, RN, CNAA, BC, CCM, Professor and Director – Graduate Program, University of Alabama –Capstone College of Nursing

    “…very comprehensive and covers the top issues, trends and challenges in today’s complex healthcare system. What I like is that the book explains how the Case Manager fits into the healthcare system and should be used as a valuable member of the team in order to control and contain escalating healthcare costs.” – Anne Llewellyn, RB-BC, MS, BHSA, CCM, CRRN, Editor in Chief, Dorland Health

    “…serves to ground the foundation of competencies for new case managers while also providing those more seasoned with essential updates to their knowledge base.” – Ellen Fink-Samnick, MSW, ACSW, LCSW, CCM, CRP, Principal, EFS Supervision Strategies, LLC

    “…another benchmark achievement and contribution to the case management field. This is the definitive text of medical Case Managers and Mullahy has brought it to the present by updating each chapter and adding a crowning jewel– implications to Case Management by the Affordable Care Act, ACOs, the aging population and updated technology in the field. In short, it is both a triumph for the field and a must have reference.” – Cathy Cress, MSW, GCM, President, Cresscare – Case Management for Elders

    “…an exceptional tool for individual certification preparation and should be included on the bibliography listing when asked, ‘What should I read? [or] How should I prepare for a certification exam?’ I applaud Cathy Mullahy’s passion and how she continues, through her Handbook, to share her knowledge and vision of what case management is today…and what it can be in the future.” – Mindy Owen, Phoenix Healthcare Associates

    “Healthcare is a rapidly changing entity and to have information that is as current as this text was surprising. This book is well-written (the writing style is conversational, which is refreshing). It is very applicable as a resource.” – Suzanne K. Powell, RN, MBA, CCM, CPHQ, Editor-in-Chief, Professional Case Management

    “…the value of this book to me remains what it has always been, a fundamental overview of CM principles and practice in a reader friendly style that provides learners with basic knowledge and encourages them to explore areas of interest more in depth.” – Annette Watson, Principal, Watson International Consulting
