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.org/e4.
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
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. Learn more at cmsa.org/ckp.

This year's National Case
Management Week is Oct. 11-17.
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 cmsa.org/cmweek.
