The latest assessment and intervention guide to improve patient adherence
Supporting the development of care management professionals and offering solutions to care managers practicing across the care continuum
CMAG 2012 is the third revision of this resource, designed to provide case management professionals with assessment and intervention tools to improve patient medication and treatment adherence.
CMAG 2012 addresses medication and treatment adherence as defined by WHO as being one of the primary reasons for readmissions and emergency room visits. Factors which may affect a patient’s ability to adhere to a plan outside of standard clinical diagnoses and treatment, such as socioeconomic dynamics, are considered in CMAG 2012. The information and tools presented in this edition serve the professional care management community as the standard by which case managers can advance assistance, coaching and monitoring efforts with the goal of ultimately improving care delivery and patient outcomes. CMSA has made medication adherence a strategic initiative since 2004, as part of its central mission to be the trusted source of resources which support and enable the professional growth of care managers. Given the key leadership role of case managers in the provision, transfer and coordination of patient information and treatment, CMSA is invested in providing educational materials like CMAG which enable case managers to be more effective in improving care quality.
