Vol. 27, No. 3, June/July 2021

Culturally Sensitive Care for LGBTQ+ Individuals: Considerations for Case Managers CEU   

Abigail Mitchell, DHEd, MSN, MBA, RN, CNE, FHERDSA

Culturally competent case managers value diversity and respect an individual’s differences regardless of race, religion, and or ethnocultural background. Case management is essential for the LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual) community because they face many challenges including discrimination and bias.

COVID-19 Family Action Plan: Supporting Families of Children with Chronic Health Conditions and Medical Complexities CEU   

Diana Dobbins Johnson, RN, MSN, CCM, and Margie Farrar-Simpson, MSN, RN, PNP-BC, NE-BC, CCM

The primary objective of developing the COVID-19 Family Action Plan was to educate families of children with chronic health conditions and those with medical complexity, many of whom are technology dependent, in the Ambulatory Case Management Program about COVID-19 prevention. The tool was designed to provide guidance for medical providers in the home who were caring for the family’s child and to provide a plan if someone in the family became infected.

Depression and Cognitive Impairment in the Geriatric Population CEU

Chikita Mann, MSN, RN, CCM

Depression in geriatric clients differs from that in other age groups. Depression can be complicated by cognitive impairment, which can occur simultaneously in patients. This article addresses the unique ethical challenges associated with working with geriatric clients with depression and cognitive impairment along with considerations for care coordination for the geriatric client.
