Little Rock, Arkansas (PRWEB) November 09, 2015
Once again in June, CMSA hosts the only case management conference that stretches across the entire healthcare continuum, in Long Beach, CA. Case and care management professionals alike will convene to elevate their careers and learn more about the ever-changing landscape of healthcare, all in “The Urban Waterfront Playground” of Long Beach, CA.
Registration opened today for the 26th Annual Case Management Society of America (CMSA) Conference & Expo, the sole health care event designed to deliver clinical, professional, regulatory and personal growth for care management professionals across the full health care continuum. The redefined conference, featuring several new elements, will be held June 21-June 23, 2016 at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, CA.
This year’s content focuses on developing skills needed to collaborate and build community within and across teams and practice settings. It will encourage participants to collaborate and share experiences with, and develop a professional network of case management practitioners, both during and subsequent to the conference. Attendees will be able to broaden and deepen their capacity to engage with populations that are ethnically, culturally and socially diverse. They will be able to establish a professional leadership development plan that incorporates career goals and important milestones, while applying networking and mentorship principles to enhance growth. All participants will recognize the value of advanced and continuing education for case managers and quality education for patients in improving care, optimizing outcomes, and increasing satisfaction. This will all be accomplished through educational sessions, poster presentations, and professional networking opportunities with thought leaders driving the profession.
The 2016 event is expected to welcome nearly 2,000 convention attendees and healthcare professionals to the Long Beach Convention Center for a five-day conference with additional pre and post-conference activities. In addition, over 200 companies will welcome attendees at CMSA’s 2016 Expo, providing information and demonstrations regarding the most current products and services, and new contacts that will advance their abilities to recommend and implement the latest technologies when attendees return to their practice.
Keynote presenters will engage, entertain and inspire attendees through their unique and diverse perspectives on numerous topics with a focus on leadership perspectives from acute care to the community. This year’s keynote presentations will feature: Eric Coleman M.D., MPH, Founder of Coleman Transitions Intervention and Dr. Josh Luke FACHE, Founder of National ACO & Bundled Payment Collaborative; Best-selling author, speaker, and life coach dedicated to helping people, Valorie Burton; and, “Theater of the Mind” mind reader, Robert Priest. In addition, this year CMSA will be offering two optional pre-conference tours, complete with CE’s.
“Our Annual Conference and Expo is the physical representation of CMSA’s strong membership and body of work as an organization. We serve case and care management professionals across the continuum, in every setting of care and at every professional level,” said CMSA President, Kathleen Fraser, RN-BC, MSN, MHA, CCM, CCRN. “Participants of our 2016 conference will benefit not only from the power of bringing an entire industry together to advance our skills and knowledge, but they will also recognize the value of advanced and continuing education for case managers, as well as quality education for patients in improving care, optimizing outcomes, and increasing satisfaction.”
