Mount Laurel, NJ – The Commission for Case Manager Certification which oversees certification for more than 46,000 board-certified case managers and nearly 2,500 disability management specialists nationwide, is seeking input from certified disability management specialists (CDMS) and other interested parties on its revised Code of Professional Conduct (the Code). The deadline for public comment is Aug. 31, 2019.

“Public comment on revisions is a professional responsibility for those holding the credential,” said MaryBeth Kurland, the Commission’s CEO. “One of the principles of the Code itself is that certified disability management specialists help maintain its integrity.”

The CDMS is an absence and leave management expert, with understanding of the systems, principles and policies needed to get people back to work, to their families and to optimal health. The CDMS acts as a liaison and navigator between the employer, employee and health care provider.

The proposed Code is available for review at https://ccmcertification.org.
