Description

Case management is an integral part in the running of organization. It involves the process of assessment, planning, facilitation and advocacy for provision of services to mitigate a social of health problem.  Case management is mainly carried out through effective communication and utilization of resources available in order to promote the most cost effective outcomes. (Peter, 2001) In advocacy for social issues like individual health, care management should be more focused on provision of personalized service which is centered on the needs of the individual through screening, planning, delivering, and evaluation of the impact of these services.
