NASW is revising its “Standards for Social Work Case Management,” and is seeking input to ensure the revised standards are relevant to social work practice across settings and specialties. Visit www.socialworkers.org/practice/aging/casemanagement to read and comment on the draft.
“The standards are designed to enhance social workers’ awareness of the values, knowledge, methods and skills needed to practice case management competently,” said Chris Herman, NASW senior practice associate. “They also increase awareness among other professionals, employers, consumers and policymakers of the social work approach to case management.”
This revision updates the 1992 standards. “It’s important for social workers to give their input to ensure the standards reflect social work case management practice across sectors, organizational settings, practice specialties and educational levels,” Herman added.
