About The National Case Management Network
The National Case Management Network (NCMN) is a leading Canadian, non-profit organization created to connect, support and sustain those who provide Case Management services. One of our critical goals is to help break down accessibility barriers between health and social services.
Membership in NCMN comprises individuals and organizations in more than a dozen diverse health and social service sectors across Canada. These sectors include: acute care, private home care, publicly funded home and community based support, social services, disability and rehabilitation management, long term care, mental health, private insurance, personal injury law, regional health authorities, therapy services, workplace and safety boards, research and academics, Department of National Defence, First Nations, and Inuit Health and Veterans Affairs Canada.
In a few short years, NCMN has become the go-to source for Canadian case management expertise and knowledge. Since its inception it has developed two significant documents – the Canadian Standards of Practice for Case Management and the Canadian Core Competency Profile for Case Management Providers. This important body of knowledge establishes a benchmark for job descriptions and performance appraisals – and provides a foundation for education institutions to develop curriculum.
“Our mandate is to foster Case Management providers for the benefit of individual Canadians, their families and supporters, and the Canadian health care system,” says Joan Park, President of NCMN. “It’s really all about protecting the public.”
