CCMC CURRENTS: Revised Code of Professional Conduct

The Commission for Case Manager Certification’s newly revised Code of Professional Conduct for Case Managers  provides ethical guidelines and principles, leaving the day-to-day practice decisions to the wisdom, insight and good judgment of each individual case manager. We want these professionals to ask questions, to think about the implications, ramifications and consequences of actions in the context of established principles. The Code outlines the case manager’s responsibility, but it doesn’t specify how they are to fulfill that responsibility.

ISSUE BRIEF: Building paths, demolishing walls

Integrated care involves a whole-person, patient-centered approach that engages patients in the full range of physical, psychological and social aspects of care. That does not describe the status quo: Behavioral and physical health operate in their own silos, to the detriment of patients, the health care system and society.
