Changes in healthcare delivery require a new understanding of the concepts of case management in managed care. The authors describe the construction and evaluation of a learning module that encourages active engagement and skill development. Students develop an understanding of how to plan for care of populations in an effort to meet managed care demands. This approach to teaching case management can be effective in an educational setting and possibly in clinical settings as well.
