  Excellence in Case Mgmt  

CM Express: SW CM has Standards

Standard 9 - Practice Standards

The social work case manager shall participate in ongoing, formal evaluation of her or his practice to advance client well-being, assess the appropriateness and effectiveness of services and supports, ensure competence and improve practice.

Interpretation

Evaluation entails soliciting and integrating internal and external feedback on the process and outcomes of social work case management practice.

Practice evaluation is vital in ensuring that services provided to clients are appropriate, effective, and timely in helping clients achieve their goals.

  Improving Patient Care...  

CM Express: SW CM has Goals

Standard 6 - Service Standards

The social work case manager shall collaborate with clients to plan, implement, monitor and amend individualized services that promote clients' strengths, advance clients' well-being and help clients achieve their goals. CM goals are based on meaningful assessments and have attainable, measurable objectives.

Interpretation

Social work CM services should be planned to meet the bio-psychosocial needs and goals of clients and delivered in a manner that ensures confidentiality in accordance with the NASW Code of Ethics. Service planning, implementation, and monitoring draw not only on ongoing, comprehensive social work assessments, but also on input from other members of the client system.
