Session Summary:

“Case management consists of assessment, planning, implementing, coordinating, monitoring and evaluating the services and options required to meet a patient’s health and service needs (van der Plas et al, 2012). Case managers have a vital role to play in addressing the palliative care needs of patients living with serious illness. They influence care decisions and can be incredible advocates and change agents. It is important for case managers to acquire primary palliative care knowledge and skills and to be able to effectively assess for physical and psychosocial issues and screen for unmet health needs in patients with serious illness. While, Case managers do not establish diagnoses or make treatment decisions, they do advocate for and guide referrals to appropriate specialty-level palliative care resources when needed “.

This session will focus on defining and describing palliative care with a focus on case management practice.
