Has COVID -19 made you feel like you are missing out on something?

The new world of COVID-19, unfortunately, required the cancellation of the annual Building Strategies conference this past March, as we saw the continued evolution of this new medical crisis.  CMSNE continues to seek options to ensure relevant educational opportunities in a safe setting in this new world

This October, in recognition and celebration of Case Management, join CMSNE as we re-envision both the Building Strategies and Annual conferences, presenting a series of weekly webinars built off the impressive line of speakers planned for this past March.

In this ever-changing world of COVID, have you felt like you have missed out on building successful strategies to balance work and life? In these times, it is ever more important to look within and around oneself for tools to help us move forward, and define our balance.  As we continue to move forward in this new world of medicine, join us for this 4 part series and unlock your hidden inner potential, learning skills to address the challenges to decreasing burnout, manage ethical decisions as it relates to moral distress, and finding both personal and professional life balance in order to achieve the Good Life.

Please join me and the CMSNE chapter in congratulating Teri Treiger RN-BC, MA, CHCQM-CM, FABQAURP, CCM, on receiving the CMSA 2020 Case Manager of the Year Award.  Watch official CMSA announcement and acceptance.

Teri has been involved with CMSNE for over two decades. She has been instrumental in forming the organization and has stayed active in shaping it over the decades. We are so fortunate to have Teri supporting us.

As I said in my nomination letter:

“Teri is a prolific author, speaker and educator, generously sharing her knowledge and expertise with CM professionals and policy-makers. Her years of service at the local and national levels has undoubtedly had immense impact on the trajectory of our profession.

Teri remains an active member of CMSNE and generously mentors new leaders in our organization. Her experience as past president of CMSNE and CMSA, as well as the numerous industry positions and appointments she has held, provides invaluable insight that helps make our organizations successful. In todays’ terms Teri is an “influencer”.

A quick web search of “leadership qualities” returns thousands of results, however, there is one quality that is common to most of these lists, and that is “humility”.  Teri is the true model of humility. Her generosity of spirit and unselfish service to our industry are admirable and qualities we should all aspire to achieve."

This is an award truly deserved and long overdue.   Congratulations Teri!!!

Douglas Cushman, RN, CCM
CMSNE President, 2019-21
