Concurrent Session & Poster Presentation Submissions

Case managers are advocates, leaders, influencers, problem-solvers, educators and more! In every work setting and within healthcare in general, there is a common challenge; how to best meet our clients’ needs in an industry that is continually evolving. Legislative and regulatory changes trickle down and lead to more change at the employer level. Initiatives to improve our practice, reinforce our value and protect our profession will ultimately lead to increased recognition that case management is the true health care reform.
Case Management is a complex career choice and certainly not a path to be taken lightly. But like most processes, time and effort produce amazing results. In support of case managers, CMSA continues to forge the future for this rapidly expanding healthcare profession. Conference presentations and poster sessions are designed to spark conversations and innovations, provide strategies and solutions, along with practical tools and successful initiatives for professional case managers and case management systems. We invite you to become a part of the conversation by participating in the 2021 Call for Presentations.
Your proposal should address at least one of these general conference objectives and be based on CMSA’s Standards of Case Management Practice:

  1. The 2020 healthcare landscape changed dramatically and suddenly, affecting every portion of the case manager role.  Discuss the lived experiences of case managers during the world’s response to the pandemic crises and the impact on case management programs in various healthcare settings as a result of the pandemic.
  2. Discuss the emerging trends and/or successful outcomes of case management practice as a result of interorganizational or interprofessional collaboration.
  3. Discuss process improvement, transformational change management and/or action research that has contributed to improving outcomes in physical, social, and behavioral health across the life span.
  4. Define the leadership role needed for case managers regardless of discipline or practice setting to function effectively and efficiently in care coordination and advocacy efforts.  Use specific examples of how to empower case managers, colleagues and peers through the areas of education, practice, mentoring, preceptorship and experience.
  5. Describe how implementation, use of policies and procedures derived from CMSA’s Standards of Practice, Integrated Case Management, Case Management Adherence Guidelines, Motivational Interviewing, Social Determinants of Health, and/or Case Management Certification impacted the development of case management programs or care management outcomes of patients and clients.
  6. Describe how various forms of information, training, professional organizations and/or member association participation influences the advancement of case management practice and the case management body of knowledge.
