Case managers-- this is your week! Celebrated annually, National Case Management Week recognizes the crucial work that case managers do across the country. Beginning in 1998, National Case Management Week seeks to bring attention to the significant contributions health care managers make in improving health care.
According to the Case Management Society of America (CMSA),
"Case management is a collaborative process of assessment, planning, facilitation, care coordination, evaluation, and advocacy for options and services to meet an individual’s and family’s comprehensive health needs through communication and available resources to promote quality cost-effective outcomes.
Care managers are advocates who help patients understand their current health status, what they can do about it and why those treatments are important."
Please join us in thanking case managers for the essential work that they do everyday.
Jones & Bartlett Learning is committed to providing high-quality resources for care managers this and every week. One such reference is Catherine Mullahy's The Case Manager’s Handbook, Fifth Edition. The ultimate how-to guide for case managers, it helps them build fundamentals, study for the Certified Case Manager (CCM) exam, and most importantly, advance their careers after the exam.
“…there is truly something special about case managers—and it is something that Catherine celebrates throughout the book. Learn from it. Be inspired by it. Draw pride from it as you practice case management as it should be practiced. Enjoy!” – from the Foreword by Jeanne H. Boling, MSN, CCM, Vice President, Mullahy & Associates, LLC
