News from Rhode Island Extension

Talk about April showers bring May flowers!

April was a very busy month for the Rhode Island Chapter of CMSNE. We had three successful programs. On April 2, 2019, Ellen Fink-Samnick, MSW, ACSW, LCSW, CCM, CRP joined us to discuss Mastering the Social Determinants of Health. On April 25, Candice Leigher, BSN, RN, Nurse Educator from Vibra Hospital discussed Chronic Critically Ill Patient Care. On May 1, Ketki Hale, PhD from Salix Pharmaceuticals spoke on Improving the Transition of Care for Patients with Hepatic Encephalopathy. All three programs were a demonstration that case managers are multifaceted professionals across many different disciplines.

At this time, the Rhode Island extension is working on bringing a few more CEU programs by the end of 2019. We will keep you posted on the new events.

Remember to go the CMSNE website:  www.cmsne.org to register for regional and local events.

If you have any ideas for programs or venues to host our evening programs,  please contact Jayna or Dolores at CMSNE@CMSNE.org
