ou, our members, are why we exist as an organization.
As the executive director of CMSA and owner of
Fraser Imagineers, I am so proud to share with you
how hard at work we have been over the past year
to improve how we support members and the value
of every area of membership.
Education is a cornerstone of the value we provide. Each case
manager needs to expand her knowledge, keep up with change and
maintain certifications at every stage in the career path. Currently,
we are working on the development, or redevelopment, of five
educational pathways which, together, offer a comprehensive
package of continuing education for any level of case manager, in
any practice setting.
First is our recently released and completely reinvented Career &
Knowledge Pathways (formerly CKP) program. The former CKP was
one program that covered many general case management topics.
Instead, the name of Career & Knowledge Pathways serves to hold,
as the name indicates, pathways to enhance and extend your career
and provide the help you need for growth in all aspects of case
management. The first aspect of this pathway, the Standards of

CMSA National Board of Directors, 2017-2018.

Practice program, offers a comprehensive review of CMSA's 2016
Standards of Practice for Case Management.
Additional pathways are being updated and/or redesigned,
including the Case Management Adherence Guides (CMAGs),
Educational Resource Library (ERL) and our new CMSA's Integrated
Case Management: A Manual for Case Managers by Case Managers.
The newly envisioned Integrated Case Management (ICM) program and manual, released in fall 2017, bring both the U.S. and
the international scopes of ICM. This excellent program, as well
as the Standards of Practice and CMAGs, are the sole sanctioned
materials of CMSA for these areas of our practice; CMSA members
receive discounted pricing on all.
In addition, we are in the process of finalizing a new educational offering for 2018: comMIt, a comprehensive motivational
interviewing training, which offers a natural augmentation of the
motivational interviewing we cover in ICM. Currently, this training offers 8 CE credits for dietitians, nurses, physicians and social
workers; through this partnership, CMSA will also offer CCM hours
(pending approval), at a low cost.
As a 24/7 option for fully digital continuing education, our
Educational Resource Library (known as the ERL) is your answer.
