CMSA'S CAREER &
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 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
CKP is made up 16 modules, providing
60 hours of continuing education
for nurses, social workers, and case
management certification. The relative cost
for groups of 20 or more case managers is
less than one academic college course in
an undergraduate program.
