You have been hired as a consultant by a hospital that is going to begin using case managers in the acute, home care, and primary care settings. You meet with the vice president (VP) of patient services. She tells you that the hospital tried to use case managers 3 years ago, and the project failed. She believes one of the major reasons it failed is because there was no clear position description or role description that was understood by the staff. She would like you to help develop an effective nurse case manager position description. 1. Identify the skills needed for a nurse to enter the case manager role. 2. Describe the role of the nurse case manager in acute, home care, and primary care settings. 3. Explains the approaches case managers use to promote the highest quality of care. You must use at least 2 scholarly references to support your answer. See the Nursing Syllabus Standards & Policies Document for Discussion Participation Guidelines & Grading Criteria.
