Vol. 27, No. 4, August/September 2021

Medical Cannabis: Implications for the Care Manager Part 1: Important Considerations for Health and Safety CEU   

Jennifer Crowley, BSN, RN, CLCP, CADDCT, CDP, CMC

Care managers may have clients who are using cannabis products to relieve symptoms, whether through legal means or undisclosed use. They may also have clients who want to use medical cannabis as a complement or alternative to their current treatment care plan. It is important for care managers to stay informed and aware of the public health risks of cannabis.

Issues and Considerations of Transitions of Care and the Seven Essential Elements of Care Transition Bundle: Part 1 CEU   

Cheri Lattimer, RN, BSN

Case managers play a significant role in care transitions by conducting a thorough case management assessment that is shared with providers before the patient is transferred to the next level of care. Case managers may apply the National Transitions of Care Coalition’s Care Transitions Bundle to their specific care settings and practice, thus enhancing patient advocacy and improving communication, care planning, patient engagement, and transfer of information.

Dementia and Care Coordination for the Geriatric Client: Part 2 CEU

Chikita Mann, MSN, RN, CCM

Case managers and others who assist with care coordination of the geriatric client with dementia are sometimes limited by inadequate knowledge about geriatric care. This article discusses Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, and dementia with Lewy bodies (including comparisons and differences among them), ethical considerations for care coordination, and recommendations for those who are coordinating care for geriatric clients with dementia.
