Care managers positively impact the lives of people living with chronic illness and disability by addressing a broad range of issues related to well-being, including assistance in navigating the healthcare system and finding available community resources. Care managers often remain with their clients through the end of their lives. Care managers may not be comfortable with providing end of life care and may benefit from specialized knowledge and skill. This presentation will provide case managers with best practices in treating serious illness, especially in the last 6 months of life, based on the experiences of a hospice worker and an end-of-life doula. A case study will demonstrate how collaborative community partnerships deliver goal-concordant care of the highest quality until the last breath.
