Case Management Certificate

Online Certificates

Description

This five-course certificate program provides participants with an understanding of the core functions and responsibilities of care management and care coordination, an introduction to care transitions, and a review of the resources available to support care in the community. This Certificate differs from our Person-Centered Case Management Certificate in that it is comprised of five courses, and does not have an additional course on person-centered planning (although, person-centered planning is covered throughout this Certificate.)

Learner Feedback:

‚ÄúThis program was very realistic and the topics and information are all about the issues I encounter on a daily basis. It will be very helpful in my every day work with seniors and those with disabilities.”
