October 2018 Collaborative Care Manager Case Review

Physical Therapy: A Valuable Tool for Pain Management

During each monthly videoconference, content experts provide education, review cases selected from those submitted by care manager attendees, and collectively brainstorm ideas to be shared and considered across delivery settings.
