CMSA is proud to offer a host of new industry resources designed to assist individuals in identifying and developing the skills needed to be effective case management practitioners and to deliver sustainable business performance. Known as the .e4SM framework, these resources are the culmination of several years' work. A key factor underpinning this work is the recognition that individuals require specific knowledge of the case management process, as well as critical thinking skills, and a variety of leadership, management, and communications skills to apply their expertise effectively. To learn more, please visit CmsA's CArEEr & KnowlEdgE pAthWAys (Ckp) EduCational progrAm Launched earlier this year, CMSA's Career & Knowledge Pathways (CKP) educational program was developed to fill a longstanding gap in case management education. Theoretical content has been available for many years, but practical instruction of basic concepts of case management, as well as skills opportunities, have been left to the individual case manager and employers. These circumstances have led to great variation in educational quality, content, and case management skill sets across the health care continuum. The debut CKP course, CMSA Standards of Practice: The Foundation for Professional Excellence in Coordination of Care Across the Continuum, was developed by thought leaders and your fellow CMSA colleagues to contribute to the basic understanding of the standards that govern our practice. Based on CMSA's Standards of Practice for Case Management, this tool is a contextual learning program that covers each of the standards and gives you the opportunity to learn at your own pace. CKP is made up of 16 modules, providing 60 hours of continuing education for nurses, social workers, and case managers seeking certification.

This #CMWeek15, we want to let the world know about case managers - who we are, what we do, and why we are important. Case Management Week has become embedded into the case management community as an annual, week-long celebration of this essential health care practice. CMSA has been instrumental in that process, bringing to light the important work of case managers in local communities and on the national level. Learn more at Issue 4 * 2015 CMSA TODAY 9
