Slide notes:Although case management is ubiquitous in medical care, there is no uniform role description or preparation. Case managers most often are trained in a primary health profession that provides a foundation for working as a case manager. Some fields, such as social work, provide courses in case management as part of the education and training. Case managers in other fields may learn on the job or have additional training requirements. There are certificates and training programs for case management, but they may not be required to acquire a position. 26
