New body set up to shape the future of case management 

In a long-awaited development, a new organisation has been created to shape the future of case management. 

The Institute of Registered Case Managers (IRCM) is in the process of setting a host of technical and professional standards to enable the organisation to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA). 

The IRCM will hold a register of case managers who demonstrate they comply with the standards. 

The creation of the IRCM is a significant move within case management, and aims to bring more transparency and clarity into the profession, giving greater confidence and protection to clients and fellow professionals alike. 

Having been in the planning stages for several years, the IRCM  which has been developed and supported jointly by BABICM, CMSUK and the VRA  is set to launch in the coming months.  

Angela Kerr, chair of BABICM, has been appointed chair of the IRCM, working alongside fellow directors Karen Burgin, chair of CMSUK, and VRA chair Deborah Edwards. 

We wish the IRCM every success.
