CONFERENCE HIGHLIGHT: SETTING THE STANDARD THROUGH
APPLICATION OF THE NEW CMSA CORE CURRICULUM
At CMSA's 26th Annual Conference & Expo in Long Beach, case management thought
leaders including past CMSA presidents gathered to present the new CMSA Core Curriculum
and its value to the field of case management.
Today, more than ever, case managers and the services they provide to individuals and their
support systems are in the spotlight. No matter where you practice-acute care, ambulatory,
long-term care, worker's compensation, hospice, payer-based, or other practice areas-you
are being asked about the value of your services and to do more, often with less.
This session reviewed the core components of delivering case management services and
why you, as case managers, must focus on setting the standard of the care delivery model.
As professional case managers, it is important to have consensus on our roles and functions
depending on practice consideration, as it helps define for the industry why it is not possible
for just any individual to use the title of professional case manager. Unite and join your voice
with this prominent set of case management leaders, where we can work together to define
and implement action for a professional case management model to benefit all.

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!
