Mount Laurel, NJ (PRWEB) October 01, 2013
The Commission for Case Manager Certification (The Commission), the oldest and largest nationally accredited organization that certifies case managers, is seeking public comment for revisions to its Code of Professional Conduct.
The Commission is dedicated to promoting the certification of professional case managers through credentialing to advance the quality of service provided to patients (herein referenced as clients).
The Commission, in furthering its objectives and though its Committee on Ethics and Professional Conduct, administers the Code of Professional Conduct for Case Manager, which has been developed and approved by the Commission. The intent of the Commission is to have a means in monitoring the professional conduct of its Certificants and to promote and ensure sound ethical practices. An objective of the Commission's Code is to protect the client and the broader public interest.
The Commission for Case Manager Certification's (CCMC) Code of Professional Conduct for Case Managers consists of Principles, Rules of Conduct, and Standards for Professional Conduct and also includes the CCMC Procedures for Processing Complaints. The Principles provide normative guidelines and are advisory in nature. The Rules of Conduct and the Standards for Professional Conduct prescribe the level of conduct required of every Certificant. Compliance with these levels of conduct is mandatory and enforcement is through the Commission’s Procedures for Processing Complaints.
To review the Commission’s “DRAFT Code of Professional Conduct” and submit comments by 5:00pm ET, October 31, 2013, visit the Center Stage area of The Commissions Web site at http://www.ccmcertification.org
