Memories of Austin

e had an amazing week in Austin, TX, at our annual CMSA
Conference. CMSA provided a
stellar healthcare symposium, with topics
stretching across the healthcare continuum.
We enjoyed educational and entertaining
programs ranging from case management
within the military and VA to acute care and
behavioral health.
CMSA is the professional case management organization that is known for integrated case management best practices,
evaluation and dissemination. The importance of integrated case management in
today's population healthcare arena cannot
be overemphasized. The case manager must
be prepared to care for his or her patient in

a holistic manner incorporating body, mind
and spirit.
Every case manager must have the training, competencies and knowledge to conduct an integrated and comprehensive case
management assessment. The case manager,
in collaboration with the patient, the family
and interdisciplinary team, develops a plan of
care based first on the patient's short- and
long-term goals. The case manager then
ties the patient's goals to health outcomes.
This is the nexus to the Case Management
Standards of Practice.
Kathleen Fraser, CMSA's executive director, along with her co-authors Rebecca
Perez and Dr. Corine Latour, introduced
their new book about Integrated Case

"CMSA is the professional case management organization
that is known for integrated case management best practices,
evaluation and dissemination."

Management, written for and by case managers, at the conference. The book was met
with great interest and an expressed need
by the case manager community. Look for
the publication of this valuable manual in
the fall.
I hope this issue brings back fond memories if you were able to attend the conference, and also inspires you to register for
next year's conference in Chicago, IL. ■
