Peter R Kongstvedt states, “The case manager is consistently challenged with managing fiscal constraints with patient expectations in light of orders and expectations articulated by the care team. This requires a highly skilled individual, certainly not a job for the faint of heart.” The case manager can also play a role in identifying disease prevention strategies.

In 2 pages, develop a “job description” or job outline for a case manager. Consider disease prevention as part of the responsibilities of the role. Also consider education and skills. Feel free to set up your information in a table. Give your work a professional look, and be sure to include each of the following headings or sections:

o   Facility name

o   Department

o   Position title

o   Classification

o   Position grade or level

o   Shift and/or days of the week

o   Reporting relationships

o   Summary statement

o   Responsibilities

o   Required competencies or position requirements

o   Physical requirements or working conditions

o   Date written

o   Date revised

For information on case managers, see your reading. You may also want to conduct research in the following websites:

o   Case Management Society of America (CMSA)

o   American Case Management Association (ACMA)

Do not simply reproduce a position description that already exists! This is plagiarism. Be creative. You will be evaluated on the information contained in the position description, as well as how professional your document looks.
