Case managing end-of-life care has never been more complex. A patient’s quality of life, and the needed attention to pain and suffering, have always been of the highest importance. Events such as the opioid epidemic, the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and persistent health disparities across populations have forced the industry to take a fresh look at how care and treatment at the end of life is considered, assessed, and rendered. Ethical, legal, and financial factors are industry priorities, with case managers juggling these moving parts daily.

During this 90-minute webinar, Ellen Fink-Samnick, MSW, ACSW, LCSW, CCM, CRP, author of the upcoming book End-of-Life Care for Case Management, will provide a detailed look at end-of-life care as it pertains to COVID-19.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Identify how COVID-19 has challenged the case management workforce
  • Align interprofessional ethical principles with practice
  • Describe case management strategies to utilize during the COVID-19 pandemic 


This program will cover:

  • Why the pandemic is different
  • What COVID-19 means for case managers 
  • Untenable choices and how ethics factor in
  • Strategies to employ during the pandemic
  • Wrapup and Q&A
