Case Management

  1. I have to make a presentation regarding Congestive heart failure Case Management for my Continuum of Care class. What are some good resources regarding this topic. My presentation must include these elements:

    1. Target Population
    2. Disease state, condition, or risk being treated
    -why case management is needed
    3. Service delivery model, major providers if any
    -When and how services are delivered? Telephonically? Home visitation? Hospital or facility based services? For how long. Is there one major or prototypical provider

    4. Model origin or history
    - where did it start?
    5. Quality of care/outcomes standards, regulations, requirements guiding practice
    - describe the standards of care that guide the nursing care protocols being implemented. many are derived from the national entities such as NCQA, AHA, and ADA

    6. Case management skills/competencies and required certifications
    -what skills and certifications are required by RN case managers providing care.
    7. Goal Outcomes
    -For the programs you reviewed, what outcomes were they seeking to achieve? Were the goals met? Why or why not?
    8. Literature review with analysis/results
    9. Implications for staff RN practice
    -identify how the type of case management you have presented can be used to enhance the care provided by the staff RN

    here are some links you might find helpful. i just did a search on the national guildelines clearinghouse for "congestive heart failure" and picked up the guidelines that seemed they might fit with your subject. however, once on that sight you can also search by any key words that you may feel are more appropriate to your topic. i didn't think to search for "case management". hope some of the information in these links is helpful for you. - links to information on heart failure and treatment on family practice notebook - acc/aha 2005 guideline update for the diagnosis and management of chronic heart failure in the adult. a report of the american college of cardiology/american heart association task force on practice guidelines - the pharmacologic management of chronic heart failure from the veterans health administration, department of veterans affairs. - heart failure from american medical directors association - chronic heart failure. national clinical guideline for diagnosis and management in primary and secondary care from the national collaborating centre for chronic conditions. - evidence-based clinical practice guideline. cardiovascular health for women: primary prevention. from association of women's health, obstetric and neonatal nurses, cardiovascular health for women: primary prevention. evidence-based clinical practiced guideline.
