National Case Management Week is October 10-16, 2021. It’s a time to celebrate YOU, our field, and the progress we have made together. This past year, case managers across all settings have been challenged to step up in ways we never imagined and bridged gaps we never thought we could, navigating the journey to health for patients and their families.

HISTORY OF NATIONAL CASE MANAGEMENT WEEK
Plans for National Case Management Week first began in 1998 as an effort to help move the Case Management industry forward. This was the first major initiative of the association since its merger with ICMA in 1995. The CMSA Board of Directors agreed to a Case Management Week celebration during the week of October 10, 1999, a date chosen in honor of the Association’s establishment on October 10, 1990.
Later, it was decided to mark the second full week in October each year as National Case Management Week. As the idea quickly spread, other organizations also began to establish their own Case Management Week celebrations.
To strengthen the movement, collaborate with other organizations, and avoid confusion about the celebration, CMSA approached those organizations about unifying the annual event and celebrating it during the same week.
