Issue 8 * 2015
Launched in June 2014, 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 to
determine and deliver. 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. Where traditional educational programs are limited in content, structure,
mode of delivery, or timing, CKP uses multiple delivery methods including video, simulations,
and case studies to encourage a collaborative and flexible learning experience.
CKP is made up 16 modules, providing 60 hours of continuing education for nurses, social
workers, and case management certification.
