You Can’t Pour From an Empty Cup:
Why Self-Care is Critical for Case Managers and Clinicians

Burnout is a word commonly heard in the helping professions. As we know, case managers experience unbelievably rewarding moments; however, there are also moments of exhaustion, stress, anxiety and other difficulties especially these days. The COVID-era has brought many new challenges for clinicians. Many of us have witnessed suffering, isolation, the loss of patients or loved ones, along with losing our sense of normalcy, structure, safety and security. When we don’t take the time to take care of ourselves, these issues build and can lead to psychological and physical problems, which as we know, not only hurt us but also have the potential to negatively impact our ability to care for clients.

In this session, attendees will deepen their understanding of self-care, learn what the research says about burnout and stress, learn to identify their own burnout symptoms and lastly gain tools and techniques for managing stress and promoting self-care.

Case management is a constantly changing profession, and one that patients rely on to be able to get the best, most reliable healthcare possible. Case managers know that when it comes to the patient’s health, they need to understand what the problem is, what the solutions are and why those solutions are the right ones for them. Founded nationally in 1990, the Case Management Society of America is a non-profit organization that exists to educate its members, the public, healthcare providers and regulators alike about improved patient procedures and outcomes, and how to achieve the optimum results for all parties involved.

We envision case managers as pioneers of healthcare change…key initiators of, and participants in the healthcare team who open up new areas of thought…research and development…leading the way toward the day when every American will know what a case/care manager does and will know how to access case/care management services.The Detroit chapter of the Case Management Society of America is dedicated to growing the profession of case management in the region through educational opportunities and promoting respected standards of practice in the field of healthcare. Our pledge is to keep you informed and up to date about the services that case and care managers provide and any member events such as webinars or education forums that we may present. Our goal is to assist Detroit case managers in providing top-quality and cost-effective care, by communicating pertinent information to patients and clients.
