Learn more about how CMSA membership can make you the most efficient, effective and competitive professional you can be at cmsa.org/membership. Member Benefit Highlight: Career & Knowledge Pathways 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!
