When your child is ill, there is a lot to keep track of and there may be many aspects to manage. It can be confusing and stressful. Maybe your child has multiple providers or needs some extra support in the home. Children’s Mercy Case Management teams are here to help.
Case management is a collaborative practice model including patients, nurses, social workers, physicians, home care, insurance providers, caregivers and the community. Our case management team can help facilitate communication, coordinate resources and referrals, and provide you the tools and guidance to help your child achieve optimal health.
If you could use additional support, have questions about how best to manage your child’s care, or think you could benefit from a case manager, ask your provider or nurse to contact a social worker or a nurse care manager.
