What's a Case Manager?

Case management services are provided by healthcare professionals working with people to identify issues and barriers that may prevent them from getting better and uncovering mutually agreed upon solutions to achieve their healthcare goals.  

Case managers work with individuals and families to understand their illness or injury, what the individual/family needs to do to participate with the clinical team, follow the treatment plan and the path to reaching the best possible outcomes.

Case managers work in a variety of specialties, including health care, mental health care, addictions, long-term care, aging, HIV/AIDS, disabilities, occupational services, child welfare, and immigrant/refugee services. They are employed in the public, nonprofit, and for-profit sectors.
