Ethical Case Management
The statement sets forth ethical principles for case management practice. When applied in practice, these principles underlie right decisions and actions. Thus, they can be utilized by individuals or peers to judge the morality of particular decisions and/or actions. Ethics is inherently interwined with morality. In the practice of the health care professions, ethics traditionally had dealt with the interpersonal level between provider (e.g. case manager) and client, rather than the policy level which emphasized the good of society. Ethics deals with ferreting out what is appropriate in situations which are labeled "dilemmas" because there are no really good alternatives and/or where none of the alternatives are particularly desirable. Thus, ethics addresses the judgement of right and wrong or good and bad.
