CMSA is excited to announce their newest educational tool, “Moving theNeedle: Ethical Patient-centered Care Coordination and Transitions of Care.”
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (PRWEB) November 05, 2018
CMSA, the leading membership association for case managers spanning the full healthcare spectrum, and the creator of the first and most recognized/endorsed standards in the healthcare industry, the CMSA Standards of Practice for Case Management, has recently developed new tools that will elevate today’s case manager to the next level.
CMSA is excited to announce their newest educational tool, “Moving the Needle: Ethical Patient-centered Care Coordination and Transitions of Care.” A broad overview of this course will first be introduced through an educational webinar scheduled for November 28th. Full online certificate course content will become available, by the end of the year.
The focus of the webinar will be to provide an overview of the definition of the ethical obligations for care coordination and care transitions, recognize unethical practices and know where and how to report, define patient-centered care, evaluate the models of care coordination and transitions and recognize the appropriate measurements used to evaluate the success of care coordination and care transitions. The course will go into these aspects but in greater detail providing guidance with the elements for improvement. It will closely follow the CMSA Standards of Practice of identification, assessment, care planning and advocacy. Optimal care coordination and transition management will be demonstrated.
Case managers are routinely confronted by gray areas due to having to deal with multiple stakeholders or points of view; they must know the ethical standards/scope of practice, which they are held and comply with them. The webinar will help address these tactics and provide tangible examples to help combat these issues and complements the full certificate course which will cover the full detail of the implementation.
CMSA members will be able to attend this webinar for free and receive a 1-hour CE for RN, SW, CCM Ethics. There will also be a companion document that will be available for download after the broadcast. Continuing education credits will also be earned through completion of the certificate course.
In addition to this new training, CMSA is also the creator of an online course released in 2018 titled the “Standards of Professional Case Management Practice” which takes a deep dive into each of the case management Standards through video presentations, narratives and case study video vignettes.
