CMSNE Award of Service Excellence
For many years CMSNE has used the Case Manager of the Year award to recognize an outstanding case management leader who has made significant contributions to the practice of case management. Building on that spirit of professional acknowledgement, CMSNE is pleased to offer a second award that recognizes excellence in case management practice.
The Award of Service Excellence recognizes an “in-the-trenches,” grass roots case manager whose day-to-day case management practice has transformed their field and contributed to the greater good – not only for their clients but for their community as well. CMSNE desires to recognize the extraordinary importance one individual can make through initiative, inspiration of others, and significant contributions to improving the quality of CM practice. The evaluation process for this annual recognition utilizes Letters of Recommendation to determine the nominee’s contribution to:
- Advancing case management
- Exemplifying the Standards of Care and Standards of Performance as defined in CMSA’s Standards of Practice for Case Management
- Demonstrating service excellence to clients and the case management community on a daily frontline basis
- Incorporating innovation, creativity and resourcefulness in his/her case management practice
- Serving others through community service by utilizing their case management skills in a non-practice setting.
