CMCoordinates: Charting your professional path

The future outlook for board-certified case managers is exceptional. New models of care emphasize the critical function of care coordination and the role of case managers in team-based care. What’s more, employers recognize the value of board certification and its validation of case management knowledge, skills and abilities.

To help us advance, advocate and inspire professional case managers, the Commission fielded a survey of board-certified case managers in November 2013 to learn more about who you are, where you work and how you contribute to your community.  Each month we will introduce new “coordinates” available to educate the industry about the profession of case management and the case management professional.

CMCoordinates illustrate the key findings from that survey, demonstrating what an accomplished, well-educated and truly committed community that board-certified case managers represent.

Download each CMCoordinates chart to use wherever you want to tell the CCM story—with your supervisors, in community settings, education sessions with other care professionals, and with those who might be interested in pursuing a case manager career. As you discuss your own career and personal “coordinates,” you’ll be able to make the case for value—both the value of earning the initial CCM to your professional development, and the value of continuing education and CCM renewal.
