The Practice Of Case Management by Peter Camilleri

Case management is used across a diverse range of organisational settings, from child protection to aged care; disability services; acute and community health; courts and correctional services; employment services; veteran services; education; and immigration programs. However, case management is not always successfully implemented, and practitioners often feel they are not given sufficient support. The Practice of Case Management draws on extensive practice research to identify the key characteristics of successful case management: organisational support; developing delivery models to suit individual client needs; preparation of staff at all levels; and affirmation of the central and active role of the client. The authors outline the challenges and complexities faced by case managers, acknowledging that their role is often poorly conceptualised and articulated. They demonstrate that true engagement enables effective service provision and offer practical strategies for everyone involved in the case management process to facilitate negotiation, accountability and the achievement of positive outcomes.

Summers' new text examines all the particular issues and specific concerns that should be understood and addressed for each high-risk population. The text indicates what warning signs to look for, what questions to ask, and what potential problems may arise. While it primarily functions as a companion text to Summers' FUNDAMENTALS OF CASE MANAGEMENT PRACTICE, which covers the basics of case management, this new text presents the basic steps in practice, dealing with specific "high-risk" populations. It also offers a greater focus on intake and monitoring. Although Summers' two books are related, this book can also be used on its own or as a supplement to other, more theoretical texts. The text is also an ideal reference for students working with specific populations.
