Care Management Skills @ Online Webinar

Professional ‘case/care management’ should result in consumers to be able to manage their own lives as much as possible and, with professional support not have a provider ‘take over’. It is a targeted, community-based and pro-active approach to care that involves assessment, care planning, monitoring and care co-ordination. Where a professional case/care management approach is effectively implemented, it has improved the experiences of consumers/clients by supporting better care outcomes and improved quality of life.

Learn Care/Case Management in six key modules?

Modules include assessment, care planning, goal setting, case conferencing, documentation; monitoring of consumer changes. The training includes competency testing via an interactive learning style. The training has been modified for the home care environment to ensure practical examples of how learning can be translated into practice.
