What Is This Programme About?
Social and health care staff know from day-to-day experience that the demands on staff for effective and efficient professional care and support continue to grow. They are confronted with a care and support landscape that is becoming more professionally specialised and increasing in quality, but which is also more difficult to manage and cost intensive. People must receive the care and support they really need, but it is also important to ensure that care is not wastefully allocated due to inadequate organisation. As a result, professional support in future will increasingly involve greater focus on communication and coordination and the bundling of care and support from a single source.
Why Choose This Programme?
If you are a social worker, social education worker or are employed in an occupation providing social counselling, then this continuing vocational educationand training (VET) course in Case Management may well be the right course for you.
How is the programme structured?

- periods of formal instruction with compulsory attendance
- online-instruction (learning platform of Fulda University of Applied Scienes)
- guided independent study period
The VET course concludes with an assessment module and the preparation of a dissertation.
