CMSUK Newsletter Issue 3

I've been trolling through the internet looking to see if there is anything interesting about our industry to put in the newsletter, and came across this Blog from the states http://www.thedisabilitydigest.com/blog/235/missing-in-action-justice-for-disabled-injured-worker/ 

Whilst this is obviously only one person's point of view of the industry in the states, it is interesting to see that similar problems continue in the US after years and years of workers compensation that we are seeing in the UK today. 

I wish I had time to do a blog, I barely get to look at Facebook these days, and I've never Twittered, but I was wondering whether any of our members keep a blog, and also whether they would like to share this with other CMSUK members?  Maybe there's a Case Management Nightjack out there who wishes to remain anonymous - if anyone knows of one we'd love to hear from you.

If Blogging isn't your style, then maybe you'd be interested in passing on some information about yourself in the newsletter.  We'd love to hear any interesting cases studies, or to learn how you ended up in Case Management - how many of us told our careers advisors we wanted to become Case Managers after all??  If you're worried that your story isn't interesting enough - don't - getting involved with this newsletter requires no commitment, and is a great way of getting yourself known in our industry.

As well as regular Case Studies and Biographies we are planning regular features on health, social care, statutory funding and benefits.  If you would like to contribute with some recent information on any of these areas you can help other CMSUK members whilst raising your profile.

If you have anything you'd like to pass on please email me liz.haunch@icmc.org.uk
