NCMNs Seventh Annual  Conference & Expo

NCMN’s annual conference and expo last week was an enormous success with sessions covering a wide spectrum of topics ranging from uninsured patients and consent and capacity issues to the importance of credentialing and integrated case management. 
“Our impressive roster of speakers from start to finish were both inspiring and inspired by case management – and the increasingly important role that case management professionals play in so many different areas of health care and social services,” said Joan Park, President.  
“’Fabulous venue’, ‘really well organized’, ‘excellent sessions’, ‘critical topics’, ‘so much useful information’, were just some of the positive comments we received,” said Park.
The conference held at the Grand Hotel in Toronto September 26-27 attracted case management professionals from across Canada. There were four plenary sessions and over a dozen smaller break-out sessions, and delegates were invited to the expo where exhibitors and sponsors were set up as well. 
“The conference underlined the value of integrating care in all sectors, connecting with professionals both inside and outside of the health arena, and solidifying our role and our professionalism.”
As Canada’s leading professional association for Case Managers, NCMN has built a body of knowledge that supports our goals – and the future of health care and social services in this country, said Park.
Other comments from delegates were equally positive.  
“I loved the format, loved the credentialing session. It was a great learning opportunity to see what other areas in case management are doing,” said Parkash Sohota of Vancouver Coaster Health, B.C.
“It was good for networking and understanding that case management comes in different forms,” said Barb Cooper, Case Manager, St. Michael’s Hospital, Toronto, Ont. “It was interesting to see how healthcare is evolving and transforming across the country.”
Constance Twin, a Social Worker at Maskwacis Home Care and part of the group that came from Alberta, commented: “Great location, easy to access, it gives me a bigger perspective across the board. Also, awesome session on brain injuries.”
“I like that it’s self directed and you choose the session you find most relevant,” said Ginger Stewart, Senior Case Manager, CMHA Durham Branch.
“The diversity and topics and the networking were great. I heard lots of new ideas,” said Susan Macartney, Champlain CCAC, Ont.’’
Pat York, Case Manager at Campbellford Memorial Hospital, Campbellford, Ont., who has been to previous conferences said that this year’s was the best yet. “It was so well managed, a nice venue and so much diverse information.”
