Here’s What’s Happening at CMSA – A Sneak Peek at Current Projects

As CMSA strives to support our members and elevate their ability to affect positive health outcomes, a renewed focus has been placed on delivering new and unique education and resources. Here’s a sneak peek at what is being worked on behind the scenes at CMSA:

New! CMSA Bootcamp: As we look at the profession of case management and those in the early years of their career (0-5 years of experience) or looking to shift to another setting, a need for hands-on, practical experience was identified. A first-of-its-kind CM Bootcamp program is currently in development to offer this type of experience and practice.

Updated! CMSA Standards of Professional Case Management: These foundational guiding principles of the profession are undergoing a thorough review and update.

New! CMSA Case Load Calculator: The need to determine appropriate caseloads based on several factors such as patient level of complexity, time needed to address the needs of patients, and other organizational responsibilities has been on the wish list for ages. An algorithm is in the process of being built to help shape workloads with realistic expectations.

Updated! CMSA Opioid Use Disorder Case Management Guide:  Assistance with the assessment, care planning and intervention of opioid abuse continues to be a need. Expect a complete update, including an expanded section on treatment for the new version coming soon!

New & Updated! CMSA’s Integrated Care Management Research Project: This well-adopted approach to assessing and treating complex patients is getting put to the test. CMSA is partnering with organizations to conduct a research project to validate and track outcomes when applying the ICM approach to care.

Keep an eye out for more information on these, and many other new and updated resources from CMSA. Contact with questions or to find out more.
