|Leadership and Career Advancement:
Key Competencies for Today's Case Manager
Case managers are at the center of care delivery for patients across the continuum. They serve as coordinators of care, educators, motivators, and are a critical link for the patient and families as well as physicians, pharmacists, clinical nurses, and other members of the care coordination team.
But what happens when case managers want to elevate their core competencies to take advantage of leadership positions and steady career advancement—which benefits the individual practitioner as well as the organization or practice as a whole?
In today’s changing healthcare landscape, the roles and competencies of case managers are shifting. Learn from a team of experts what you need to know to capitalize in this exciting time of change.
In honor of Case Management Week, the publisher of Case In Point, Case In Point Weekly, and a host of resource directories presents an exciting 90-minute online training session where individuals and teams can gain insight from four leading professionals on what skills and competencies nurse case managers will need to be effective in today’s dynamic and changing healthcare delivery system.
Attend from your desktop or conference room. Invite your whole team to attend at one low price of $329 per location. Each registration comes with access to the archived version of the program and the materials until December 31, 2011.
About the Webinar
The American healthcare system is evolving. Care is becoming more focused on wellness, disease prevention, health promotion and chronic illness management. In addition, healthcare reform will provide many more people with access to services. As a result, there will be a continuing increase in the demand for everyday care through new venues such as community health centers, professional home healthcare services, long-term care facilities, primary care providers’ offices, and nonemergency settings that are close to home.
Within these settings, case managers will be essential parts of ensuring access to coordinated care. Their clinical knowledge and leadership skills directly affect the quality of care that patients receive.
As we all know, case management is a multidisciplinary practice. Yet according to the 2008 Case In Point Salary and Trends Survey [PDF], 94 percent of the practice is made up of nurses. As nurses are the largest segment of the healthcare workforce and the primary professional caregivers, the practice offers the greatest pool of professionals to become the next generation of case managers.
To maintain a healthy workforce, professionals need to find ways to achieve a work/life balance. Today, burnout and fatigue are problematic not just for ourselves but for our patients. In today’s fast-paced environment, how can you achieve optimal patient interventions while maintaining a positive and focused energy in your healthcare pursuits? Resilience theories, often directed to our patients, now teach us how to attain simultaneous personal satisfaction and improved patient quality. Understanding practice boundaries and the tools to refocus awareness and attention to one’s goals and objectives will promote career sustainability and a higher quality of intervention.
The Case In Point Webinar series convenes an expert faculty with a wide breadth of experience in academia, leadership and professional self-care. We also hear from a recent graduate who will share her vision for her nursing career as she enters the healthcare workforce.
The goal of this program is to recognize the leadership skills case managers require to meet the array of challenges brought on by today’s changing and complex healthcare system. After participating in the Webinar, you will be able to:
- Describe the leadership skills required for today and future case management professionals.
- Define professional resilience.
- Learn ways to address stress and avoid burnout to ensure you are performing at your optimal level.
