May 2018 Collaborative Care Manager Case Review

Patient Perceptions of Worsening Health Failure Symptoms: an exploratory analysis


Mi-CCSI has established a collaborative care approach utilizing subject matter experts to provide case review for complex cases. Complex cases are defined by multiple diagnoses or conditions, biopsychosocial, socioeconomic barriers/limitations, high cost patient ability, confidence, and desire.

During each monthly videoconference, content experts will provide education, review cases selected from those submitted by care manager attendees, and collectively brainstorming ideas to be shared and considered across delivery settings. See more details in the following brochure:Collaborative Care Manager Case Review Program Description

Intended Participants

This forum is intended for care managers and care coordinators primary care or ambulatory care settings who require alternative care options for complex cases.


K. Reeder, PhD, RN, CNS, FAHA
Dr. Reeder is a nurse researcher at Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College in St. Louis, Missouri. In 2010, Dr. Reeder receieved a five year K99/R00, Pathway to Independence award from National Institutes of Health (NIH) – National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR).

The purpose of her research project is to examine the timeliness of symptom recognition, interpretation and reporting in heart failure. Patients with heart failure are at heightened risk for acute exacerbations of illness and hospitalization. While timely reporting of symptoms can often expedite outpatient treatment and avoid the need for hospitalization, few patients recognize and respond to symptoms until acutely ill. The overall goal of Dr. Reeder’s program of research is to promote independence and effectiveness in self-management of chronic illness and prevent avoidable hospital readmissions.
