The Spectrum of Case Management
BY MARY MCLAUGHLIN-DAVIS, DNP, ACNS-BC, NEA-BC, CCM

n the late 1980s, I worked first as a nurse
and then as a rehabilitation nurse liaison
at a free-standing acute physical rehabilitation hospital. The facility was amazing for
the depth and scope of the programs it provided, from pediatric to brain and spinal cord
rehabilitation. Acute physical rehabilitation
hospitals are different from acute medical
hospitals because the interdisciplinary team
approach is used for all aspects of healing
and recovery. The patient and family are
always integral to the planning process. It
was my work in acute rehabilitation that
led me to the case management profession
and CMSA.
The writers for this issue of CMSA Today
are describing two types of case management practice, seemingly at opposite ends of
the acute care case management spectrum:
emergency department case management
and rehabilitation case management.

the family is grateful for the life-saving
action of the emergency department
team. In the acute rehabilitation setting,
the patient and family realize the reality
of the long road to recovery and community reintegration. The case manager
is with the patient and family in both
settings to inform them about options for
rehabilitation, advocate for the patient's
choices and provide ongoing support
and direction.
The emergency department case manager and the acute rehabilitation case
manager have much in common. Both
case managers assess, plan and implement
an integrated case management plan of
care. Both case management settings have
components of population and disease
health management, and both are goaldriven to return the patient back to the
community, with the necessary tools and
resources to better equip him or her to
be self-sufficient.

Case managers have provided the glue
and substance behind care management
plans for these two setting for the past
quarter century. It is in this issue that we
are recognizing these specialized case
managers for the meaningful contributions they make in the lives of those most
vulnerable due to disease, cognitive deficits and socio-economic challenges. ■
