Role and Function Describe the roles and functions of the nurse case manager in (1) acute care, (2) home care, and (3) primary care settings. Often the case manager is a social worker rather than a nurse. What skills would a nurse need to have to better prepare to do a community health plan for a patient? Why are these skills important? What are some of the approaches case managers use to promote the highest quality of care with careful use of resources? Think globallyÃ¢â‚¬Â¦how can palliative care and hospice services assist this strategy.
