The SW Care Manager II performs mental health assessments, evidence-based interventions (SBIRT) for those at risk of substance use disorder or those diagnosed with substance use disorder, cognitive function screenings, crisis interventions, safety planning, and/or other appropriate interventions to patients with psychosocial needs. The SW Care Manager II works closely with RN Care Managers, physicians, nursing staff, and other staff as appropriate to determine when social work involvement is indicated to address patient care needs. In addition, the Social Work Care Manager II helps drive change by identifying areas where performance improvement is needed (e.g., day-to-day workflow, education, process improvements, patient safety rights, and patient satisfaction). The Social Work Care Manager II is frequently assigned a caseload that is more complex and resource-intensive, and also serves as a resource to Case Management team members.
