Author:Morgan Cooley

Subject:Caseworker Accuity and Case Assignments

Good Afternoon, I am working with a child welfare agency who is interested in the possibility of assigning dependency cases to case managers by acuity level, such as degree level, degree type, or professional certifications. Does anyone have knowledge of this practice or seen any research regarding acuity and dependency case management? In addition, is anyone familiar with any research or information regarding assigning case managers by maltreatment type (sexual abuse, physical abuse)? Thank you for any helpful information or suggestions you may have.
