CMSA Association News REGISTER NOW! CMSA'S CAREER & KNOWLEDGE PATHWAYS (CKP) EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM 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 experience. 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.
