As case management moved into acute care settings the roles and functions of both RN case managers began their evolution. From the time of the UR specialist sitting in the corner of a nursing station reviewing a record for medical necessity to appease the state physician review organization to the current role of the RN case manager involved in multidisciplinary collaboration, the roles have changed significantly. Additionally, case manager roles are transitioning across the continuum of care and are integrating through varied communication strategies. This program will review the contemporary roles of both RN case managers and social work case managers, in addition to clerical support and more complex case management roles, such as the complex discharge planner. Evaluate your roles and functions, as well as the roles and functions of your department in this informative seminar.
