What is a Case Manager?
A Case Manager is someone who uses extensive clinical /professional skills and sound management practice, to deliver timely progress towards identified objectives, in a client centred way.
Case managers can work across a number of different environments including statutory services, private and voluntary sectors. For Bush & Company case managers much of our work occurs within a medico-legal environment.
A case manager will advocate and support clients and families through catastrophic and life changing circumstances, whilst ensuring they receive the most effective rehabilitation possible and coordinating the services around them to maximum effect.
By empowering individuals and their families, wherever possible, to take control of their rehabilitation journey, a case manager helps to maximise their potential and ability to return to meaningful activity or vocation.
A case manager can work autonomously with a client or as a member of a wider team. They utilise their clinical reasoning and problem solving skills in, a creative, flexible, proactive and confident manner to ensure their client’s needs are met. They enjoy working with diverse groups and are willing to learn and develop the ability to communicate and negotiate with solicitors and insurers in this exciting but, rewarding field.
