CMSNE Annual Conference – October 9 & 10, 2018
All Eyes on Professional Practice:
Seeking Clarity on Cross-Continuum Social and Clinical Complexity
Southbridge Convention Center – Southbridge, MA

Conference Summary and Objectives

As Professional Case Managers participate in healthcare’s evolution, we reinforce our commitment to compassionate and ethical care coordination and support. The diverse needs of our fellow human beings heighten our desire to remain informed and ready to advocate for those we serve. Many clients face similar, seemingly routine, health care needs while others have bio-psycho-social circumstances that challenge seasoned Case Management veterans. Professional Case Managers face every day challenges with robust academic knowledge and years of hands-on experience as evidenced by achieving licensure and certification credentials. Case Management fills an essential role across all sectors of the care continuum. It is critically important that we continue educating stakeholders about our role and advocating for (or against) proposed legislation and policies which affect our practice, roles and responsibilities. Our advancing professional practice distinguishes Case Managers as experts in care coordination. This is made evident through our devotion to lifelong learning, proactive practice and the provision of the highest quality, cross-continuum service to our clients.

 Upon completion of the conference the attendees will have the knowledge to be able to:

  • Examine professional responsibilities relating to all aspects of client care
  • Recognize the impact of psycho-social issues on care coordination and continuity
  • Leverage resources required to address complex bio-psycho-social needs

Exhibitor Prospectus now available on our chapter’s website.

The Conference Brochure will be available in July.
