Massachusetts Events

News from Massachusetts Extension

Whomever coined the phrase "March comes in like a lion" certainly had March 2018 in mind. As we all have survived the month's third nor'easter and hear another is on the way, our thoughts are geared toward Spring, opening day at Fenway Park and polishing our golf shoes. Let us not forget Nurses WeekMay 6-12, with this year's theme: "Nurses: Inspire, Innovate, Influence".   All of us can account for how we, as Case Managers, have inspired and influenced both patients and colleagues during our careers, as well as remembering those who did the same for us.
As Spring approaches, please consider attending one the MA Extension's programs:
  • National Ambassador Program - The Ethical Case Manager Making a Difference  April 4th at Whittier Rehab in Bradford in collaboration with the NH Extension and on April 5th at Life Care Center in Attleboro in Collaboration with the RI Extension.  (Both of these programs have sold out forward inquires to regarding availability and/or waiting lists.)
  • May 9th at Life Care Center in Auburn; Working with Alcohol & Substance Abuse Disorders.  The registration for the program is open and can be completed on our website
  • Wednesday, June 8 in collaboration with the NH Extension we will offer "A Walk in Their Shoes" an immersive experience that simulates what a dementia patient experiences. This will be held at The Residence at Salem Woods in Salem NH.  
  • June 28th at Norwell VNA and Hospice a program on Hospice and Palliative, watch for upcoming details. 
The MA Extension Committee is hard at work arranging additional programs and information will be shared as new events are scheduled.
As always, we welcome current chapter members who may be available to volunteer with planning or organizing CMSNE programs and events. We could use representatives at scheduled programs in various parts of the state, ie. Central and Western Massachusetts. Those who may be interested can contact the main office at

Yours in professional case management practice,
Ken King and Virginia Heikkinen, MA Extension Co-Chairs
