Care Management Practice

Social service practitioners have traditionally played an important role in care management, the collaborative process of assessment, facilitation, and coordination of services and supports to older adults and people with disabilities. With current developments in the health and long-term-care system, that role remains crucial, especially in coordinating the care of individuals who wish to live as independently as possible. This course provides an overview of care management and presents the latest in skills and tools for providing support for clients and their families. Participants will also learn about long-term-care management services and resources available in the community.
