Using Case Management to Manage Long Term Conditions Within the Workplace
12-15 million people in the UK have a long term condition (LTC), which can range from musculo-skeletal problems, to degenerative neurological conditions and mental health issues. With an ageing population and an ageing work force, we will see an increased prevalence of chronic disease and long-term health conditions needing support and management by employers.
This one-day CPD course details a stepped and stratified case management model which can be used to help employees living with a health condition, disability or after an injury, to stay in work and achieve optimal function within the workplace, while managing health issues.

Comorbidities is one of the most important issues facing the health care system and employers. The number of people with multiple long term conditions is predicted to rise by a third by 2022.
The most prevalent long term conditions emerging as issues to manage in the workplace include:
- Mental health conditions
- Musculoskeletal conditions including arthritis
- Post cancer survivorship
- Cardiovascular issues
- Respiratory issues
Case management is 'a collaborative process which assesses, plans, implements, coordinates, monitors and evaluates the options and services required to meet an individual’s health, care, educational and employment needs, using communication and available resources to promote quality cost effective outcomes’ (CMSUK Standards of Practice 2005).
A stepped and stratified case management model can be used to help employees living with a health condition, disability or after an injury, to stay in work and achieve optimal function within the workplace, while managing health issues. Early case management intervention is a valuable approach for businesses and healthcare providers a like.
Early intervention and best practice case management are key determinants in maximizing a return to work.
