day we interact with our clients, their significant others, members of the
treatment team and the community. No
matter the setting, some things remain constant; Know Your Client and thorough
assessment are the core of professional case management practice. Others rely
on case management records for treatment and decision-making beyond our
control. Our case management notes, etc. are part of a legal document, whether
paper or electronic. As professional
case managers, we have both a legal and ethical duty to document, guided by
law, the CMSA Standards of Practice for Case Managers and Codes of Professional
Conduct. How would anyone know that we
have performed our case management role unless our documentation is clear and
accurate? In this session, we will examine the nexus of these obligations and
- Recognize the importance of individualized documentation that reflects the specific needs of each client impacting client and who they are.
- Realign documentation with legal mandates, ethical duties, and professional responsibility.
- Reflect on the importance of each client and their unique background (DENI), personality and needs.
