CM Qualifications

Qualifications and credentials are very boxed in definitions for individuals to fit into that provide quality services. This should be expanded as degree field is not as relevant as interacting with consumers, making assessments, having good work ethic and being knowledgeable about brain injury. Those things can easily outweigh a degree and current very knowledgeable case managers may not fit into this category, which would be a loss to our ability to provide quality services. In point, this should be expanded. 

Also, QBISP versus CBIS are NOT comparable to be a qualified. One is easily achievable without any knowledge of brain injury really and the other is much more comprehensive.
