The case manager, like many "new professions" does not yet have a defined curriculum. We consider that the principal requisite for case managers is a proficient knowledge of assessment for the care of elderly. Therefore, we focused a four-week teaching course for future case managers on the National Resident Assessment Instrument (RAI) of the United States and the Long-Term Care Program Application and Admission Form of British Columbia, Canada. We verified that this simple program provides students with adequate skills to become case managers.
