General Information

Overview

This unit provides students with an introduction to case management, how case work integrates within the framework of case management, and the structured steps in the case management process across a range of practice fields. The history, the policy and political framework and the implementation of case management across a range of practice fields will be critiqued. Students' will explore the lived experience of service users and the co-design of care plans using the case management process. It is an individualised service delivery model in which students will develop knowledge and skills in undertaking holistic social assessment, developing care plans, coordinating services for service users, monitoring and evaluating care plans, and transitioning service users to independent and interdependent living.

The Task

Case Study: Focus on assessment process including ethical issues and confidentiality

In the following case study, you will be undertaking an initial assessment, using knowledge and skills developed in other units to provide an understanding of the needs, resources and relationships that will assist in working with the service user. This is the first phase of the case management process. The task is to outline the key steps in the process, building the relationship, managing tension in the relationship with service users who may involuntary (or reluctant ‘voluntary), exploring the service user’s world, theories of assessment, roles, risk, and ethical and legal considerations.

The case study provides a description of the service user’s social environment. This will involve working with an assessment framework, outlining the case management process and what stage you are working in the case management process, the skills you will be using in the early phase of the process, being aware of the service user’s current reality, using appropriate theories, describing the role of the case manager, and awareness of the ethical and legal issues involved in this particular case study.

Academic Integrity Statement

As a CQUniversity student you are expected to act honestly in all aspects of your academic work.

Any assessable work undertaken or submitted for review or assessment must be your own work. Assessable work is any type of work you do to meet the assessment requirements in the unit, including draft work submitted for review and feedback and final work to be assessed.

When you use the ideas, words or data of others in your assessment, you must thoroughly and clearly acknowledge the source of this information by using the correct referencing style for your unit. Using others’ work without proper acknowledgement may be considered a form of intellectual dishonesty.

Participating honestly, respectfully, responsibly, and fairly in your university study ensures the CQUniversity qualification you earn will be valued as a true indication of your individual academic achievement and will continue to receive the respect and recognition it deserves.

As a student, you are responsible for reading and following CQUniversity’s policies, including the Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure. This policy sets out CQUniversity’s expectations of you to act with integrity, examples of academic integrity breaches to avoid, the processes used to address alleged breaches of academic integrity, and potential penalties.

What is a breach of academic integrity?

A breach of academic integrity includes but is not limited to plagiarism, self-plagiarism, collusion, cheating, contract cheating, and academic misconduct. The Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure defines what these terms mean and gives examples.

Why is academic integrity important?

A breach of academic integrity may result in one or more penalties, including suspension or even expulsion from the University. It can also have negative implications for student visas and future enrolment at CQUniversity or elsewhere. Students who engage in contract cheating also risk being blackmailed by contract cheating services.

Where can I get assistance?

For academic advice and guidance, the Academic Learning Centre (ALC) can support you in becoming confident in completing assessments with integrity and of high standard.
