National Case Management Week is observed annually during the second full week of October. This year's theme is “Case Management: Exceptional People. Exceptional Care.”
(PRWEB) October 09, 2017
The American Case Management Association (ACMA) is celebrating National Case Management Week this week (October 8-14) to recognize the dedication, compassion and quality patient outcomes achieved by case managers across the health care continuum. The theme for this year is “Case Management: Exceptional People. Exceptional Care.”
Case managers provide collaborative clinical assessment, care coordination, patient education, counseling, case monitoring/clinical pathway management, discharge planning, resource management and patient advocacy. Hospitals and health care providers depend on case managers to enhance the care of patients, and ensure the efficiency and effectiveness of providing care and resources.
In conjunction with National Case Management Week, Wednesday, October 11, is Accredited Case Manager (ACM) Recognition Day. This day is in honor of case managers who have chosen to validate their competency in case management through achieving the nationally-recognized ACM certification. This achievement authenticates a case manager’s knowledge and expertise by requiring passage of both a competency exam and a clinical simulation test. In addition, certification demonstrates a commitment to the profession and to industry best practices.
During National Case Management Week, ACMA encourages all health care organizations to recognize and support the practice of case management by promoting case management’s role in the delivery of health care. Throughout the week, local education, recognition and awareness events will be held across the country.
