CMSA Today - Issue 5, 2016 - 12

CMSA Association News 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. Learn more about the CMSA Core Curriculum at http://www.lww.com/ Product/9781451194302. CMSA'S STANDARDS OF PRACTICE FOR CASE MANAGEMENT, REVISED 2016 The newest version came hot off the press at CMSA's 26th Annual Conference & Expo, with CMSA leadership presenting the 2016 revision to conference attendees.

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!
