IHRM in collaboration with the Case Manager Association of South Africa are inviting you to attend webinars

Topic: An overview in Managing the Unpredictable Patient's Outcome


The roles of the occupational therapist, physiotherapist and social worker and funder together with the medical team


Presenter: Dr Daleen Casteleijn

Date: Tuesday 20 April 2021

Time: 13:30 to 16:00


Using the continuum of care an explanation will be provided of the possible roles of the allied health team at each stage and applying this to a case study – looking at what happened, and what would have been the best possible use of the resources to achieve the best possible patient outcomes. 


Lessons to be learnt from this case study:

- medical scheme not funding for essential processes in the journey, 

- health care workers not documenting or measuring progress and 

- case managers not having access to data.


This webinar will be prepared using the Teams Microsoft online platform. You can attend from the comfort of your home or office. All you require is internet connectivity.

The emerging new case management science is where the case manager, metaphorically speaking, is the conductor of the orchestra to direct the various musicians to provide the best music. Each musician plays a different instrument but together they produce an excellent outcome if the conductor keep them in harmony.  The patient outcome is metaphorically the music being played by the orchestra and if one musician is not contributing the music is of a poor quality. It is thus not the director’s task to ensure that every musician has a quality instrument, but it is the director’s task to ensure that what each musician produce is adding value to the music being played.
