May 15, 2019: Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE)
According to the Center for Disease Control:
“Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) is the term used to describe all types of abuse, neglect, and other potentially traumatic experiences that occur to people under the age of 18.
Adverse Childhood Experiences have been linked to:
As the number of ACEs increases, so does the risk for these outcomes.”
Case managers/Care managers in all settings can better serve when there is understanding of ACE’s and how these experiences may be a contributor to the patient level of complexity requiring a case/care manager.
CMSA GGRK encourages case/care managers in all settings to grow in their profession. To assist you, we are providing you with available resources:
CMSA GGRK presents an educational presentation and case studies to address Ethical Dilemmas. This is an area that nurses, case managers and social workers in rehabilitation are frequently confronted by situations where it feels like nobody wins. Pressure from payers; conflicts among team members, family members, and the patient; and difficulty assessing the patient’s decision- making capacity are top ethical concerns identified by rehab research. Case studies will be used to highlight common issues and a template for problem solving will be introduced. Creating an ethical environment can lessen a clinician’s stress, improve satisfaction of the team and patient/family, and reduce patient and organizational risk. During the review of 2 case studies, the Codes of Professional Conduct for CCMC, RN, and SW will be provided to utilize in problem solving the ethical dilemmas presented.
