Member Benefit Highlight: Career &
CMSA's Career & Knowledge
Pathways (CKP) educational
program fills 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 to determine
and deliver. These circumstances have led to great variation in educational quality,
content, and case management skill sets across the healthcare 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
in case management to contribute to the basic understanding of the standards that
govern your practice. And, CMSA members receive a program discount!
