CareManagement is the official journal of the Academy of Certified Case Managers and Commission for Case Manager Certification. This bi-monthly journal is free to ACCM members and contains 2 continuing education programs (worth 4 CE credits) per issue.

CCMs are now required to earn 8 Ethics CEUs by 2018 to renew the prestigious CCM® credential.
