Guilt and Shame: Factors in Care Management
Thomas L. Blakely, LMSW, PhD
Guilt and shame are factors in emotional distress that clients may
hide from their care manager. This article discusses the generation
of guilt and shame and ways to manage these feelings.
Patient-Centered Care Using Patient Perspective to Address the Social Determinants of Healthcare to Reduce Readmissions
Colleen Morley, DNP, RN, CCM, CMAC, CMCN, ACM-RN, and Ellen Walker, MSW, LCSW, ACSW
Potentially preventable readmissions have been connected to insufficient or ineffective discharge strategies. Case managers have long made the connection between social determinants of health (SDOH) and increased risk for readmission through anecdotal observation. Failure to create overarching strategies to address the gaps caused by SDOH continues to impact the care continuum’s ability to adequately equip the patient for success postdischarge.

Shanna Huber, BSN, MSN/Ed, RN, CCM, CLCP, CNLCP, CMC
Values are the fundamental beliefs of a person or an organization. This article discusses the process of defining personal core values, creating and defining organizational core values, and incorporating these values in difficult decisions care managers are often faced with within the work environment.
