The Essential Guide to Interprofessional Ethics in Healthcare Case Management

Ellen Fink-Samnick, MSW, ACSW, LCSW, CCM, CRP

Gain the ethical skills necessary to respond to workplace bullying, treatment adherence, practice across state lines, and other ethical dilemmas.

Case managers are frequently confronted with ethical dilemmas and tricky situations. Failure to grasp ethics in healthcare case management can negatively impact quality of care, organizational costs, and even a case manager’s career. In addition, poor ethical practice can harm an entire organization through financial repercussions, safety concerns, and damage to staff or facility reputation. Understanding and keeping current with ethical, legal, and practice standards is vital for case managers.

The Essential Guide to Interprofessional Ethics in Healthcare Case Management will help case managers navigate the ethical conundrums they face as they interact with one another, the healthcare team, and patients and families. Rather than providing a broad-strokes overview of ethics, author Ellen Fink-Samnick takes a focused approach and considers specific scenarios unique to healthcare and case management. The book covers industry disruptors, including technology and social media; workplace bullying; licensure across state lines; patient care considerations, such as end-of-life care, LGBT patients, and traumatic brain injury; and the impact of ethics on models of care, such as value-based care and population health.
