We were established in 1996 to develop best practice in brain injury case management. As a representative body we now have one vision, that the needs of people with brain injury and complex conditions are recognised and met through excellent case management.
We aim to deliver a clear development pathway to ensure we can consistently promote high standards and professionalism in the delivery of brain injury and complex case management across the UK. We are collaborating with other organisations to create a national joint case management framework and to promote high standards of practice and accountability, working towards national accreditation for case managers.
Case management is a collaborative process, that assesses, plans, implements, coordinates, monitors, and evaluates the interventions and services required to meet an individual’s health and wellbeing, rehabilitation, education and/or occupational needs, using communication and available resources to promote quality, cost effective and safe outcomes. The practice of case management developed in the UK in recognition of gaps in services for those individuals whose needs did not fall conveniently within the boundaries of a single agency or professional group. Watch our helpful video below for more.
A Case Manager should be a qualified health or social care professional. Case Managers will have skills and experience in working with people with brain injury or complex needs. Case Managers are employed in many spheres, including Health and Social Services, but also privately and in insurance companies.

Clients and their families need to identify a case manager in whom they have trust and confidence and with whom they can develop a good professional relationship. Case managers come from different professional backgrounds and have their own particular areas of expertise.
Potential clients should ask the proposed case manager for a CV as an indication of his or her relevant experience and specialisms.

I recommend to my clients that they instruct a brain injury case manager and when I recommend a particular brain injury case manager I always turn to the British Association of Brain Injury Case Managers. I turn to BABICM as they have a comprehensive list of experienced brain injury case managers.
I frequently choose one of their advanced members, as I know that they will have many years of experience in supporting survivors of brain injury and their families.
